When French physician Dr. Jean Louis Bussière gathered his father’s belongings, he found three thousand photos and a large number of documents including ones gifted by Chinese former President Yuan Shikai, the Tibetan Lama 9th Panchen, Peking Opera actor Mei Lanfang and many other anonymous people. There is a garden in one of these photos which was built in Beijing by his father. His father Dr. Jean Augustin Bussière was the head physician of the French Legation, physician of the president of the Republic of China and had lived in China for 41 years before left. In the spring of 2014, Jean Louis came to China to find out the secrets behind these photos.
