Hong Kong (Kowloon) Marie, Amah and Bigsis

Text on Flickr:

This house stood in the district of Tsim Cha Tsui, Kowloon, on Chatham Road S., between Prat Ave. and Cameron Rd. View is north, with the Gun Club Barracks in the distance. Marie-Félicité, "Bigsis" and her Amah (Nanny) greet a passerby who looks a lot like Jules. More likely they're seeing him off to work.

1900s Elgin Road

On Flickr attributed to the 1920s, but Elgin Road became Haiphong Road already in 1909. Possibly taken from Robinson/Nathan Road. 

There is a gas lamp in front of the houses. Public Works Report for 1892 states the erection of gas lamps on this road.
