Lively street scene, with signs reading "Sing Kee Boots & Shoe Maker", "Tung Cheong Co.", "The Rainbow Artistic Goods Store", and many more.

Photo made by Willem Kien, director at Holland-China Trading Company (HCHC), which was Charles Gesner van der Voort’s (1916-1991) employer. The company had offices in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Guangzhou (Canton) and Tientsin (Tianjin).

This is a picture of a Hong Kong street in the 1940s that I found many years ago. I no longer have a link to it.  I believe it was in the public domain then.

Can anyone put a name to it?
