Big photo by Mee Cheung of what seems to be the governor or a member of the royal family (the mam in the whote uniform in the front car has greay hair and the car carries a crown). Not dated but must be from the early twenties as my grandfather Pieter Marks (who brought this picture back home to the Netherlands) was stationed in Hong Kong twice, the second time from approx. 1923 until 1927.
