For any ship / dockyard / engine / buildings afficianados, from my latest rummaging - Eastern and Australian's 'Nellore' and 'Eastern' alongside the docks, Australian Oriental's 'Taiping' in front of them in the second pic - visible buildings are Lower Stanley Terrace and Taikoo Sugar Refinery - inset is the first Doxford engine ever constructed in HK, 4500 b.h.p., on the test bed at Taikoo, destined for China Navigation Co's newbuild 'Chungking'.
