Scope and content

Mr. Chew Keen seated on a stuffed arm chair, with a Chinese boy standing to his right. Chew Keen is wearing a pair of glasses, pants, shirt and a heavy knitted sweater along with Chinese slippers on his feet and a cap on his head. He has a lit cigar in his left hand. The boy is wearing pants, sweater, shoes and a cap. In the background is a floral cloth backdrop with a Lesson Dickie Grosse Co. Ltd. Calendar above the boy's head. The identification of Chew Keen is tentative, as the man could instead be Wah Lee (Chew Keen's father). The same boy is in P1690.
