Early 1840s HK View - who owns it?

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1844

Here's a view of the north shore of HK Island from the 1840s. Does anyone know who owns it?

It appears in in the book "An Illustrated History of Hong Kong" (by Nigel Cameron, 1991).  In the acknowledgement, he credits the source as the Information Services Department (ISD). I've contacted the ISD photo library, the Museum of Art, and the Museum of History, but none of them have this painting in their collections.

Attached to this and the following message are some images of that pair of detailed 1879 watercolours by Constance Gordon Cumming, which we were kindly lent back for our exhibition in Exchange Square last November (see our 2014 catalogue) - in case your readers should be interested.  The images of the whole watercolours are based on 25-year-old transparencies, and the colour is wrong, but I took the close-ups recently.
