1890s Victoria Harbour Central

This another view of the Victoria Harbour, I dated it to 1894 because Carmichael & Co. Lo. has already been built.

Interesting buildings:

1. This shows the 60 -70 Des Voeux Road build close to finish(or repair?) and a monster-long building in front of it! Anyone got idea what the long building do??

1900s Victoria Harbour Central

Hi here is another photo of the Victoria Harbour view C. 1900, from this photo we can see the Central reclamation (which Connaught Road to be built) has just started, it began in around 1889 so I think 1900 is when this photo been taken.  HD link: https://photos.app.goo.gl/LQLU6ZSVzYmGejmN6

Also I have taken some close shots and found few interesting thing:

1900s Lane Crawford & Co.

Central praya C.1895

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1895

Hello I am new in Gwulo.com and here is my first photo to share, it is an albumen photo showing panorama view of Victoria harbour in Central back in circa 1895. The following clues I found in this photo:

- The 2nd Gen. Central market has already built(at rightmost), so this photo at least taken after 1895

- There is no clue that the reclamation of Des Voeux Road has started yet, that means it was before 1889

I would like to hear anymore clue you guys found in this photo!
