Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos):
In 1865 the Hong Kong, Canton and Macao Steamboat Company was started, to provide steamship connection between Macao, Hong Kong, and Canton. The American shallow-draft river steamers Kinshan (the first boat of this name), White Cloud and Fire Dart were the company's earliest acquisitions. The White Cloud was a paddle-wheeled vessel, which was sold out of the company during the Spanish-American War.
