View of Hong Kong harbour, ca. 1907

Dear reader,

A photo album on which this photo is on the cover, is from 1918. Gwulo member moddsey helped me establish a date for this photo: ca. 1907. On the left John's Cathedral can be seen and in the centre and right there are the Naval Yards, with a new dockyard being finished in the centre.

A vague number 218 has been painted to the negative of the photo (lower left), which style might reveal the maker. Any suggestions?

Kind regards,

Pieter
