Portrait Karel Baggerman ca 1943

Charles Gesner van der Voort (1916-1991) worked in Shanghai for Holland-China Trading Company from just before WWII. After the outbreak of war, two of his colleagues went to England, to join Dutch forces, they became "Engelandvaarders" from the East. One of them was Karel Baggerman (1918-1982). He joined Princess Irene Brigade, was trained as one of the first Dutch commandos and participated in two major military operations in The Netherlands: Operation Market Garden and the Battle of Walcheren.

John Thomson (1837-1921) photographic studio location in present day Hong Kong?

This is a wonderful website, full of really useful information.

I am trying to locate where in present day Hong Kong John Thomson's photographic studio would have been. Queens Road was so long in 1868 and I can't figure how the old numbering system would relate to today's Queen's Road layout. Thomson had 2 studios in Hong Kong, the first  was at the Commercial Bank Buildings, Queen's Road, Hongkong. And the second at 29 Queen's Road (next to Messrs Lane, Crawford and Co).
