Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Monday, January 1, 1900


The caption to the image was "General Gascoyne & Officers Hong Kong trying new Rifle Range, and Firing Party at new range c.1900"

Sorry I don't know where it is either.


From Harlech Road shooting toward the rifle range at High West ?  Do the islands match up?

Hi there,

We would need a fine day without haze with very clear visbility in order to match the islands these days. 

However after referring to a map, That ridge did look like High West.  I would say if the location shown in the photo was the shooting range and the butts at Harlech Road, the remote islands along the line of sights would be Hei Ling Chau, then the Chi Ma Wan Peninsula of Lantau at the back, then Tai Tung & Lantau Peak.

Best Regards,
