From the illustrated London News 11 April 1857
I have transcribed the part about the thre photos, ? means I was unsure of the word:
First is the mast ? of Pedder's Hill, late the Harbourmasters residence and offices, 84 feet above and 800 from high water mark. This view is taken from the 3 gun battery infrom of the new Government ?
Next is a north-east view of Victoria Peak 1800 feet high taken from the Harbourmasters flag staff showing Caine's(?) House late the residence of Govenor Sir John F Davis(?) Below is a Chinese Bungalow, the first solid building erected on Hong Kong as a European residence in 1841 by the present ? Govenor Col. Caine to the right on the slope of the hill, the Magistrary and Prison Compound.
The fort represented in the next illustration is named? Kowloon and lies opposite Hong Kong. Even in their guns the Chinese show their fondness for colour; those of Kowloon being black with red muzzles and mouldings? and mounted on black carriages.
