Hong Kong (香港) - Kowloon (九龍) - To Kwa Wan (土瓜灣) - Hoi Sham Park (海心公園)

Text on Flickr:

Hoi Sham Island (海心島), also called To Kwa Wan Island (土瓜灣島), is a former island in Kowloon Bay off the coast at an urban and bay of To Kwa Wan. The island was famous for the Hoi Sham Rock (海心石) and Fishtail Rock (魚尾石), and was believed to be a place of good Feng Shui. A Hoi Sham Temple (海心廟, also 龍母廟) was originally located on the island.

No. 5 Boundary Stone (Replica)

This boundary stone is exhibited at the Hong Kong Museum of History in Tsim Sha Tsui. 

Obviously, it's a replica - and not an exact one!

It bears the date 1899; this is ok with the year of delimitation of the boundary, but the original shows the date 1898 - that's the year of the Second Peking Convention.

An album I acquired about 40 years ago is on display at the Hong Kong Maritime Museum open at one of the Hai Ching piracy image pages. Difficult to photograph in its glass case and low lighting.

The whole album is from an HMS KENT China Squadron cruise.

It has been on display ever since the museum opened to the public
