Netherlands Harbour Works Co.: Blockyard at Hong Kong, ca. 1925

Dear reader,

From the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam archives, here is a photo from a brochure by Netherlands Harbour Works Co. showing the construction of a quaywall at Hong Kong, ca. 1925.

I would be happy to receive comments on this photo: location, etc.

Kind regards,

Pieter

That's Kowloon across the harbour, so the foreground is somewhere along the north shore of Hong Kong island. Probably in North Point where the reclamation project was underway.

A similar scene looking across the harbour.
