Original Title: Victoria, the Harbour and the Kowloon Peninsula from Victoria Peak (Hong Kong)

Photo likely taken from Lugard Road.

I think the date is c. 1925. The P&O Building (1924) is visible, and on the Kowloon side it looks to me (with a bit of phantasy) as if the Peninsula Hotel is under construction in an early stage. Wanchai reclamation progressing.

Great view of Barker Road Houses!
