Honeymooners - Benjamin March and Dorothy Rowe 2017-05-11
Hangzhou, newly dubbed ‘City of Love’, has been a honeymoon destination for many years - in fact ninety years ago it was in Hangzhou city that the romance of Benjamin March and Dorothy Rowe blossomed and where their hearts and minds were captured along with the beauty of the West Lake and all of its surroundings.

Benjamin March was a respected writer, scholar and curator of Chinese art, one of the foremost authorities on Chinese art in the 1920s and 1930s. In the July of 1925, he married Miss Dorothy Rowe, the daughter of a Methodist missionary in Nanjing and together they travelled to Hangzhou where they honeymooned and photographed extensively. These photos were kept in an album he entitled ‘Summer1925’.
