Tennis Match, Braeside Hong Kong, 1909

The person who made this photo, Willem Kien, was director at the company which Charles worked for, Holland-China Trading Company (HCHC). HCHC had offices in Rotterdam, London, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tientsin (Tianjin). He lived at The Peak. On Gwulo.com, I found the address of Braeside: 20 MacDonnell Road, also at The Peak. For Hong Kong residents, it must have been an excellent place for leisure.

Charles in Shanghai cover

Charles Gesner van der Voort worked in Shanghai for Holland-China Trading Company (HCHC), which had offices in Hong Kong and Tientsin (Tianjin) also. I am preparing a book about Charles and his friends. While doing research for the book, many people contributed photos, several of which can be found on Flickr. Quite a few photos relate to Hong Kong, from the 1900s to 1930s. Please enjoy and I look forward to your comments and additional information you may have.
