Basel Mission and Isolation Hospital

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1905

This is a picture from an old slide series illustrating the Basel Mission`s work in Hong Kong an Southern China among the Hakka. (There is a clearer copy on the USC website; but I love my rusty old slide reel.) Western Street runs down the hill. The building to the right is the little Isolation Hospital for Plague Patients, which was located opposite the old Basel Mission House. So this picture is about 1905. The first Mission House was built in 1861 by Rudolph Lechler between High Street and Third Street.
