Wow!! Any chance they have the baseball team in Peiping during 1936-38?

Thx for the comments folks... Re the BB team, sadly all I am allowed to do are view their file numbers / size, then I discover topic of pic when I open it.... There are 140 pics in this file named athletics, and that's only the start of the file contents... After that is the BoxerRebellion photos... Enjoy
