Portrait Willem Kien, Dresden ca. 1895, photo studio Hahn's

Portrait of Willem Kien (1877, Arnhem - 1970, The Hague), who was educated in Dresden and lived there with his family. 

Ca. 1898 he went to China to work. In 1903 he became representative of Holland-China Trading Company (HCHC) in Shanghai, when the company was founded. Charles would join the company in 1938, first as a trainee in the Rotterdam head office and then in Shanghai, in 1939.

Hong Kong, group of young men relaxing, ca. 1900

Dear reader,

Do you perhaps recognise the patch of land, somewhere near The Peak (is my guess)?

And what about the structure: straw, held up by poles. Any thoughts on what this is?

Regardless of these questions, the young men in this photo are having a good time on a sunny day. Please enjoy it!

Kind regards,

Pieter
