Peninsula Hotel and Holt's Wharf in camouflage. Note also the war damage to the houses on Middle Road.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Monday, October 1, 1945


Great shot from an unusual angle!

Fascinating to see the pockmarked ground from wartime bombing where the future Hong Kong Sheraton hotel would be. Can also see a glimpse of Chungking Arcade bottom right. 

Inside Victoria Harbour, near the Naval Dockyards, the masts and superstructural parts of a sunken ship can be spotted.
