Standing on the left and smiling is my friend Mr. Ho Yin Guai who worked at a European bank.  Ho introduced me to the Praying Mantis school taught by shifu (Cantonese for Master) Wong Hon Fan.   Counting Ho as part of the second row, yours truly is fifth from the left.  This photo was taken on August 13, 1963 at a restaurant at which time diplomas for various levels were handed out, and skills presented by students.

A photo of SCMP Staff members taken on the rooftop of SCMP offices in 1949 (date inferred from its position in my photo album).  John Prettejohn (my father) standing on the very left.  Johnny Luke is 4th row, second from left.  Freddie Wong is on the right of the group of three standing at the rear in the middle of the picture. I only know Uncle Luke and Uncle Freddie in the picture as they were were my godfathers.

Class Graduation (C1936)

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1936

This is the second of two photos I recently received from a family friend.  I interpret the title at the top as photo taken in 1936, the school's name - likely located in Kowloon.  It mentions " 中學" but considering the age of the students, it appears they just started an early level/grade at this high school.  I have no knowledge how the schools' structure worked in those days.

A photograph taken in 1917 of the Army Ordnance Department stationed in Hong Kong.

The chap in shorts, front row centre is Lt. Col. T. A. Robertson.

Upon retiring from the army T.A.R. returned to Hong Kong in 1923 and served as secretary of the Hong Kong Club.

Maryknoll-C1937- Gathering of Primary School Classmates

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1937

A family friend recently gave me this photo which shows her mother, and informed me that my mother was also in it (back row, first left).  The occasion was a get together of primary school classmates and at this time, several girls including both our mothers have started, or about to start, schooling at Maryknoll.  Note the two different uniforms.  I estimated it was taken in 1937.

Maryknoll Sisters School, form 3A, 1963-64
