"Queens Street Hong Kong"

"Queens Street Hong Kong"


From the book by William Perry Fogg, published in Cleveland/Ohio in 1872. This photo was not printed but affixed as separate photo (the website refers "Albumen photographs"). The date should be 1870 or even older.

This is another copy (one of three) on the internet. In this copy a different photo is shown compared to this.

Shows praya central at todays Des Voeux Road. Obviously, the inscription on the photo is incorrect. Gives the situation after the 1850/60's Praya Reclamation. 

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Saturday, January 1, 1870
