I mentioned a while back that I had an issue of National Geographic from March, 1920 with an article about Taiwan, and someone suggested that I put it on the web. So here it is (images on the large side to preserve detail) — featuring a long article entitled “Formosa, the Beautiful.” One part Margaret Mead’s Coming of Age in Samoa, one part Owen Rutter’s Through Formosa, with 60 B&W photos and much commentary, it’s a trip back to the days when Kiirun was the island’s best port, and Taihoku was its capital.
