Young Japanese student Masujiro Kiryu, going through his fathers scrapbook of photographs fron the China Campaign, just before World War II, discovered a strange cone-shaped object in the sky above a Tsientsien Street. A number of people in the street are looking up and two are pointing up at the object. A sidewalk photographer snappped a picutre of the strange machine and his father bought it from the street vendor for a souvenir of the place.

Additional info about this photograph from UFOArtwork.com:

There seems to be some confusion over this photo. One site states it was taken in the city of Tienjin, China in 1911 by a Japanese journalist. Source. Another site says it was taken in Tiensten, Hopeh Province, China in 1942 . Source. I recently received this information from Alain Stauffer, Geneva : Chinese ufologist Shi Bo: "La Chine et les extraterrestres" (in French, since Shi Bo lives in Paris). He states in his book (my translation): "In 1942, an American man on duty was walking in the street of a town [not specified] in the north of China. He suddenly saw a black hat silently flying above the street. He immediately grabed his camera and took this first picture of a UFO in China. This American citizen wished to visit China very soon in order to trace the witnesses of this event." (This commentary has been written in 1982 - the book was published in January 1983). Additional information comes from Wendelle Steven's "UFOs over Modern China" UFO Photo Archives.
