Just picked up a grouping of these interesting color images a few weeks ago from a late 1920s - 30s vintage scrapbook. This was one of the better ones, relating to the 1920s era China Marines. The caption says "From Dawn to Setting Sun, Marine Occupation in Defense of Shanghai - 1927." Great shots of the "Old China Hands" you posted, reminds me of that famous photo of the jaunty looking Horse Marine Private leaning on the Patton sabre and wearing riding breeches from this era.
