"The China Magazine... contained photographs by John Thomson, Henry Cammidge, Milton Miller and others... Apart from containing a number of photographs unpublished elsewhere, the 'China Magazine' contains interesting feature articles which throw light on life in mid nineteenth-century China, Hong Kong in particular" (T. Bennett, History of Photography in China, 1861-1879 (2010), pp. 303-308).
