Not Chinese, but a Japanese Type 89.
Some of the bunkers of that type still can be seen in Tangshan(汤山) and some other areas near Nanking and Shanghai.

Hello to all :D; a little more on this............................

Black Saturday, August 14, 1937..............................

The Chinese air force launched its own attacks despite the bad weather. Chinese Northrop bombers took off from Guangde, about 120 miles west of Shanghai with early Curtiss Hawk II dive-bombers supporting them. About 40 planes arrived over Shanghai, which was covered in thick cloud. bombs (two) fell at the crowded intersection of Nanking Road and the Bund while two more bombs from a Northrop fell on bustling Avenue Edward VII. The bombs caught crowds of onlookers gazing up at the planes and the loss of life was appalling – 1,740 people killed and 1,873 injured.

The first picture in this series ("Chinese women minister to soldiers...") seems like a rather stark portrayal of the effect of malnutrition on lower income Chinese citizenry.
