Description: Laying the foundation-stone of the New Hospital.

 Location: Hongkong, Hongkong

 Date: 1897

The date hints to the foundation of Victoria Hospital at Barker Road.

However, I found the same image on flickr with the following subscript:

Top hats and parasols at the ready. Laying the foundation stone of the Alice Memorial Hospital in Hong Kong in 1909. The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation was a major supporter and funder of this new hospital.

Which one is correct?
