I'm not sure if 'Shum Chun' was the name of a house, or the town called Shenzhen today.

There is a record dated 1925 for Albert H. Craig of the Chinese Customs, Chefoo in the Carl Smith Archive, card no. 91673. I haven't ordered these myself from the UK, but I believe the system is that you can do so through the Public Records Office by means of bankers' draft. As this is rather expensive, it's best to wait until you can order several cards together.
