Damaged Building - Typhoon 1923
Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Thursday, August 23, 1923


Damage to a Kowloon factory. The same photo (Ming Yuen) appears in the HK Telegraph on 25 August 1923.

Hi Moddsey, many thanks for all your comments on the photos I'm posting. All the photos are originals from Ming Yuen studios, so it would appear that the events between 18 and 23 August 1923 must have been particularly enduring and damaging as well as extremely costly both personally as well as economically to the people on the island and surrounding areas.  I have one or two more to  post from the "typhoon" collection which I shall do in the next few days.
