Hello! Just wondering if anyone can help me out with this photo. I want to know whereabouts in Hong Kong this house might have been (I imagine it's been well and truly flattened by now!).
This house belonged to my g-grandfather and g-grandmother, Samuel and Elizabeth Baker (nee Kerr). Samuel was an engineer at the East Point Sugar Refinery and before that he worked for Jardine-M's Indo-China Steam Navigation Co (1890s-1910s), so I imagine he would have wanted to live close by to those places of work.
The house is right by the water, and the picture could have been taken at any point between 1900 and 1927.
In addition, their daughter (my grandmother) was sent to a school in Hong Kong until she was 8 or 9 and the family moved to the UK. There's a picture of her here with some of her school friends... anyone know where the school might have been or what it was called?
