Where: We're looking west across Statue Square, with Prince's Building on the left, Queen's Building on the right, and Chater Road running between them.
What: The focus of this shot is the sedan chair, number 331.
I've read there were sedan chairs for hire, and sedan chairs that people owned. I don't know the difference though - can anyone recognise which type we're looking at here?
There are also signs of two of the square's statues. In the top left corner there's a blurry view of Queen Mary's statue, and behind the man on the right we can see the railings that ran around Queen Victoria's statue.
Who: Two carriers, and one rather imperious looking passenger. None looking happy about having their photo taken!
When: I'm guessing it was taken around 1930. [Update: More iikely to be late 1920s - see comments below.] If anyone can give a better date from the lady's hat style, or the cars in the background, please leave a note in the comments below.
And judging by the lady's fur coat, definitely a winter's day.
