Kowloon Bay Mid-1800s

Kowloon Wan shoreline in about mid-1800s.  The ridge line of the distant hills matches well with the current photos looking to the southeast from To Kwa Wan.   This could be the original shore which is of personal interest for its farmland and tranquility, and of course the huge lonely boulder on the tiny island.

I don't think this was the Sun Wong Toi rock which sits on land connected to the mainland and its shape is different.  I wonder.
