View of Hong Kong harbour, ca. 1907

Dear reader,

A photo album on which this photo is on the cover, is from 1918. Gwulo member moddsey helped me establish a date for this photo: ca. 1907. On the left John's Cathedral can be seen and in the centre and right there are the Naval Yards, with a new dockyard being finished in the centre.

A vague number 218 has been painted to the negative of the photo (lower left), which style might reveal the maker. Any suggestions?

Kind regards,


Date picture taken


Circa 1907. Description of the dockyard can be viewed here and a similar scene here 

From the two photo references given, the positions of the boats in the harbour are quite similar.
