One thought on “Bookplate – Li Chung Soo (Edmund Younger, ??-1946)

  1. I have a postcard of li Chung soo sitting in a lantern, with the words ‘Redlands woolsington Northumberland England ‘ written at the bottom of the card. Can you tell me if li Chung soo was any relation to Chung ling soo or Arthur Hartopp as I also have family pictures with Arthur Hartopp in, If not related, what have these three people got in common apart from.
