Aberdeen.

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1954

It looks as though there were 4 floating restaurants when Peter visited Aberdeen, and the Naval dockyard is just visible in the bottom right corner.  Ap Lei Chau island was still largely undeveloped.

Further to Marlowe's comment on the photograph of the banks, later in this gallery, I now wonder whether more or even all the images in Peter's gallery are commercial ones dating from 1950.  Peter only arrived in Hong Kong in 1953.

Chaiwan Bay.

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1955

The Chai Wan fishing fleet was still quite large.  On the right a new sea wall is being built and soon the bay would be largely infilled.

Hong Kong and Shanghai bank.

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

On the left, the new Bank of China building is being constructed.

Pokfulam.

Tiger Balm garden.

Is that a shelter on top of the hill?

Peak Tram 1950

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1950

The Bank of China building is only half complete, so the date is likely to be 1950.  Another commercial photograph bought by Peter?
