Holland-China Trading Company: VW T1 delivery van at street market, Hong Kong, ca. 1956

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.

Street scene with some stalls, a woman under a parasol and several men eating something. These men are sitting on a curious kind of seat. I believe these stalls are Dai Pai Dong, open-air food stalls.
