Hong Kong Hotel on fire

Hong Kong Hotel on fire

I believe this to be a picture of the fire of the Hong Kong Hotel in 1926 because it comes from the collection of my grandfather Pieter Marks who  lived and worked there (for the Dutch East Indies Commercial Bank, the 'Nederlandsch-Indische Handelsbank') in the early twenties until 1927.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Friday, January 1, 1926


Guess this photo was taken from Pedder Building. Jardine House on the left with an un-named building to its right.
