Victoria Hotel, 10 QRC [????-????]

This was a hotel in the Wang Hing Building in the 1960s. 

Fodor's Guide for 1965 damned it with faint praise:

VICTORIA HOTEL, 10 Queen's Road Central, is a place to stay when no other hotel has a room.

Victoria Hotel, DVRC [????-c.1895]

Date Place demolished: 
c.1895-12-31 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)

This building stood on the south side of Des Voeux Road Central, from Li Yuen Street West across to Pottinger Street. I'm not sure how far south towards Queen's Road the building extended.

When it was built it stood on the seafront, so it is easily seen on photos taken from the harbour.

Its construction date isn't known yet, but when it collapsed in 1895 (see below), it was described as "one of the oldest in the Colony".

By 1884 it was occupied by the Victoria Hotel, and the hotel continued in operation there until late 1894.

Amsterdam, Leidsestraat 82-84, former office Netherlands Harbour Works Co.

Charles Gesner van der Voort (1916-1991) has been a member of NRCV (Nederlandse Reünisten Vereniging China (NRVC, Dutch Reunists Association China), as well as most of his former colleagues at Holland-China Trading Company.

NRVC evolved from Nederlandsch-Chineesche Vereeniging which was founded in 1923, by people who had an interest in China. Most of them had worked there, or studied Chinese and Chinese culture.  Its magazine "China" had its editors' address at Leidsestraat 82-84 in Amsterdam, where Netherlands Harbour Works had its head office.
