Not Maxim, but Chinese copy of Browning, or "San Shi Jie"(三十节) HMG.

I must say I find that somewhat unlikely since the MG has the very distinctive Maxim spring box on the left side of the receiver which to my knowledge is atypical for Brownings and derivatives.

To oirob: Thanks a lot! Really interesting photos.

To peeved: Perhaps my identification is wrong. I know very little about machine gun. I will have a more careful look.

Hello,

According to the caption, the second photo is not taken in Shanghai, but troop in Pukou. Pukou is on the opposite side of the Yangtze River to Nanking, and today it has become one of Nanjing's districts.

As usual, what is the source of these pictures?

Oirob, do you know what the backstory is on these fellows? I would guess warlord troops of some sort based on their uniforms, but I'm not particularly familiar with the different factions' uniforms.
