Official deed Holland-China Trading Company installing W. Kien as representative, 1903

Charles worked for Holland-China Trading Company (HCHC) in Shanghai. Willem Kien was made representative at the start of the firm in 1903, later he became director.

Little archival material is available today, as the Rotterdam office was bombed by German airplanes at the start of World War II in the Netherlands, in May 1940, so I am particularly pleased this deed survived, going back to the very start of the company.
