1950s Rickshaw Puller

Date is a guess. The building behind the rickshaw is the Chinese Methodist Church. Note the letters "R. D." on the rickshaw puller's hat. Perhaps stands for "rickshaw driver".

Postcard Hong Kong: Pottinger Street, ca. 1947

Charles Gesner van der Voort had started his career in Rotterdam, at Holland-China Trading Company (HCHC). In 1938, he went to Shanghai for the firm. The Japanese interned him, and most other Dutch nationals, from 1943-45. In camp, he met his wife Nancy and they married after the war. After a leave in The Netherlands, they returned to the Orient, where Charles continued to work for HCHC in Hong Kong.

This postcard was found in the company archives, held by Stadsarchief Rotterdam. It shows Pottinger street in Hong Kong  and has a serial number, 189.
