Charles Gesner van der Voort worked for Holland-China Trading Company (HCHC) in Shanghai. This photo shows one of its first directors, Willem Kien, standing at the quay in Macau.
On the photo, a steamer is about to board in Macau. The workmen are ready to connect a walking bridge, there is a crowd at the quay and a line of passengers waiting to board. It looks like the photo was taken from the arriving ship.
