Richard Chamberlain

Richard Chamberlain FAITHFULL was a solicitor in Hong Kong in October 1912 until December 1917.Faithfull has practised in London previous to this for twenty nine years. Faithfull married Daisy Spencer Laisun in 1920 in Shanghai, a famous Chinese family.

His practice was at 35 Queens Road Central. I am seeking any photographs of Faithfull for my PhD Research on the legal men of the Shanghai International Mixed Court 1920. 

I am studying at the University of Queensland Australia and am unable to leave Australia re Covid restrictions.
