Stanley's lost beach-1990s

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1990

This beach at Stanley disappeared under the present promenade.

The abandoned small sailing Junk was probably Vietnamese. Presumably used by boat refugees.                           It closely resembled those I saw in Hai Phong harbour and on the Red River Delta in the 1980s.

When this photo was taken Sailing Junks had disappeared from Hong Kong’s waters

Portrait Lily & Johnny Lafleur, ca. 1951

Charles Gesner van der Voort (1916-1991) worked for Holland-China Trading Company in Shanghai, from 1939 to 1943.

Franciscus Hubertus Joseph Alphonsus Lafleur (1890 - 1946) was a colleague at the Hong Kong office and lived in Hong Kong with his wife Lily (1907-1982), son Ah Tong and daughter Ah Kan (Mary). The Japanese interned the family in Stanley Camp, Hong Kong. Unfortunately, Franciscus (probably people called him Frans) died soon after WWII.
