De Jongh family residence, 2 Chatham Road, Hong Kong; Kowloon Signal Hill, 1930

Charles Gesner van der Voort had started his career in Rotterdam, at Holland-China Trading Company (HCHC). In 1938, he went to Shanghai for the firm. The Japanese interned him, and most other Dutch nationals, from 1943-45. In camp, he met his wife Nancy and they married after the war. After a leave in The Netherlands, they returned to the Orient, where Charles continued to work for HCHC in Hong Kong.

Chuk Lam Ming Tong, Ping Shan 屏山

A building I stumbled across somewhere off the Light Rail between Tuen Mun and Yuen Long. Finally, after years of Googling "紀念堂 屏山", I found this blog post (http://blog.terewong.com/archives/8985), which explains that it is Chuk Lam Ming Tong, an elderly care home (www.clmt.org.hk) in Ping Shan.
