View in Hong-Kong - Bungalow of French Admiral in Foreground
I am unsure of the location but I think Garden Road is in the foreground. Does anyone know who the French Admiral was?
After further research I have worked out that this photo is of the Wyndham Street/Arbuthnot Road area taken from junction of Ice House Street/Lower Albert Road, roughly where the FCC is today.
The following building can be seen:
Dent's Bungalow in the lower right with the gatehouse/stab/es/servants quarters lower left. This is the only photo of Dents Bungalow I have seen as the area was redeveloped in the early 1860's. (There are paintings) In the foreground Wyndham Street is seen crossing bottom left.
Top left is a building on the north side of Arbuthnot Road which appears in an 1846 painting. to the right of this building is a house on Caine Road. The two similar buildings on the skyline top centre/right are what I have called No. 5 and No. 8 Chancery lane. Centre right hand side is an unidentified building between Arbuthnot Road and Wyndham Street. possibly a government store or a stables. Just above this building a high wall can be seen which is the boundary wall of Victoria Prison that runs along Chancery Lane
