CCDO Staff Hong Kong 1940 - IMG_20211006_0001.jpg

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 

David Green, an old friend has asked if anyone can shed any light on this photograph taken in 1940. It shows a group of C.C.D.O. staff and the photograph was shown to David by his neighbour.  As far as is known the only person named is the central figure on the photograph known as 'Uncle Billy' by the relatives in the UK.  It's not much to go on but perhaps somebody in the Gwulo family can let us know what C.C.D.O stood for and perhaps name the location and any of the others on the photograph.  Is the 'C.C.' a reference to Cheung Chau?


Group of (banking?) gentleman, January 1927

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 

Big photo by Ming Yuen Studio which was sent "with best compliments" to my grandfather Pieter Marks. On the right hand bottom corner it is signed "Yours sincerely S(omething) Patmore or Patman (?) 28-1-1927". My grandfather (from the Netherlands) was employed by the Hong Kong agency of the Dutch India (or better: East Indies) Commercial Bank (the 'Nederlandsch-Indische Handelsbank') and left Hong Kong for leave back to the Netherlands in 1927 or 1928, to return to Singapore in 1928 or 1929.
