Japanese Hong Kong Surrender Ceremony 1945

I have just uploaded two photographs sent to me soon after the 75th anniversary of VJ Day by a cousin of mine. Her father, Air Commodore Gilbert Bartholomew the original owner of both photographs, was present at the ceremony, representing the Royal Air Force.

This photograph is one of two sent to me soon after the 75th anniversary of VJ Day by a cousin of mine. Her father, Air Commodore Gilbert Bartholomew, was present at the ceremony, representing the Royal Air Force (he is marked with the small 'X'). The ceremony was held in the entrance lobby area of Government House on 12 September 1945.

I believe this is the location of the Japanese surrender ceremony at Government House on 12 September 1945.  Coincidentally, I took this photograph standing in roughly the same spot as the photographer who took the 'Hong Kong Japanese Surrender 2' image. It was taken on a Government House open day in less turbulent times than in 1945.

Only just noticed one of the IFC towers being built on the left of this photo. I don't even remember seeing either IFC tower until 2007!
