Probably the 1937 typhoon shown in other photos from Jim's album.

Original caption in album was "SS Tai Shan off Green Island", but see Moddsey's comments below.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Wednesday, September 1, 1937

The hills in the background are the Kowloon side of Lyemun Gap with Devil's Peak rising on the right. Probably taken near Tai Koo Dockyard.

Looks like the ship was the SS Hong Peng as seen

Thanks Moddsey, I've updated the title & description.
