China 1911 Old Tuck's Postcard Marauding Chunchuses Chinese Banditti Horse RiderVintage Colour Art Artist Drawn Tuck's Oilette Old Post card. 1911. Ethnic Life. Qing Dynasty. Life in China. Horses. Chinese Horse Riders. Winter, Snow Snowy Ground. Marauding Chunchuses.
These people are a race of banditti and like their brethren the pirates of the sea, are a constant terror to the country they infest. They make their living by robbery and are here depicted after looting a solitary hamlet. Their recklessness and daring in destroying bridges, roads and railways made them useful auxiliaries during the Russo-Japanese War although this was somewhat discounted by their unpleasant custom of robbing the dead.
