In 1973, the site of Alfred Holt’s Blue Funnel Line Holt’s Wharf & Godowns site was being transformed into the New World Hotel and New World Apartments.

As in the way in Hong Kong, the New World complex has since been demolished and a new high-rise edifice is taking its place.

The platform for what will be another hotel is in progress at bottom left. A hotel still exists there (Intercontinental?) The names keep changing.

Both Robert and John Mitchell worked as a ship's engineers in the Merchant Navy during the 1870s and 1880s, as did their youngest brother William, and like them, travelled extensively, as did Andrew (see photo 50) as a master mariner.
