Guten Tag, meine Dame und mein Herren,

Please excuse my awful school days German – been decades and decades.

Do any of you have knowledge of images of the German Legation building during the Boxer Rebellion of 1900? If so, I'd greatly appreciate your sharing that with me – and I will share it with others.

Veilen Dank!

Major Mike, thank you so much for the post and the link – I checked it out and saw the image, even book marked it. Now the link just goes to a general page, same with my book mark. But I can't find the image, even searching 'see more images'. If by chance you find it again and can post it, that'd be great. If not, at least I have a sense of the image in my head now and can use it.

Nashville, thanks! Now I can go compare with the Blue Moon offerings and decide whether to adapt or scratch. Of course, a question is the time frame for that photo – it might or might not be from the Boxer time frame. No matter, I'll use if for inspiration anyway.
