1900 Hong Kong question
I have a question or two about life in Hong Kong at the turn of the 20th century. If I were a wealthy Chinese businessperson living on HK Island, where would I live? At Midlevel?
Do you have any pictures or details of how a typical Chinese family would live if they had a great deal of money? What kind of home would it be? What would the interior look like? What sort of things would set them apart from others or the colonials? What would be considered luxury and available? What did wealthy Chinese families do?
