old Wanchai School to the south of Seamen's Hospital

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

The painting shows the Seamen's Hospital at hospital hill in Wanchai in 1873. To the south, one can find the old Wanchai School surrounded by short walls.  On the left is the open stone-nullah.  The present day "Stone Nullah Street" follows this alignment, and the open stone-nullah became a box-culvert under the road surface.   On the foreground one can find a twin-structure with decorations on the roofs.  It is the Pak Tai Temple, which was built in 1863.
