Restored & Colourized Hong Kong Photos

I am a professional photo restorer and colourizer who works, for the most part, on antique sports images. But I have a great love of old Hong Kong images as well and have done a number of them. 

Hong Kong Naval Dockyard 1982

1946 View from Midlevels

This photo is the same as Naval Dockyard & Kowloon-1949, but with much higher resolution. 

Regarding the looted house, a 1946 date is probably more appropriate than 1949. 

Below the boat pool/camber, a few Nissen huts are visible, but much less compared to the 1950's.

Hong Kong Harbor 1910 - 15 LOC

This photo probably shows Victoria Barracks (right) and godowns (left). It is dated to 1910-1915, but probably earlier.
