Sui An.jpg

This picture of a life belt on the Sui An on the way to Macau doesn't tell us much, unless sharper eyes than mine can tease something out. From the ages of the children, born summer 1925 and December 1926 respectively, I guess the photo would have been taken in about 1928. Leslie Warren occasionally used to take his family to Macao, when visiting the CE Warren & Co. Ltd. agent there.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Sunday, January 1, 1928


The S.S. Sui An was a river steamer belonging to the Hong Kong, Canton and Macao Steamboat Co. Ltd. A few years earlier, on 19 November 1922, a piracy incident occurred on board the vessel.
