Native transports passing through Dalny


Native transports passing through Dalny



Date Created


A transport from Japan has arrived at one of the wharves of Dalny, and the long row of vehicles seen in this picture is going down to the wharf to transport the supplies to the various camps around Port Arthur. As a rule, standing between the two firing lines around Port Arthur, one would not have known that a war was going on. The Russian and Japanese soldiers kept out of sight behind massive walls or in deep trenches, but in the rear of the Japanese lines all was bustle and business. Back and forth from Dalny to the front, lines of transports were incessantly moving. From one to five dozen light wagons or carts drawn by single small, shaggy horses moved along, each guided by a small, dust-covered soldier. They were the strength of the army, the flower of the Japanese youth, clerks, professional men, students, existing on rice and pickled prunes, grimed, heated, menial, and getting none of the glory of the war. They were the unnamed and unknown but life-sustaining commissary.
