1845 Heath's panorama of Hong Kong

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1845

Stephen Davies has been researching this panorama, and last night he gave RAS members an interesting talk about what he's discovered. The panorama was drawn by Lt Leopold George Heath, the gunnery lieutenant of HMS Irisis and it is usually dated to 1846. But Stephen hasn't found any record of Iris in Hong Kong that year, whereas it was here in 1845, so that's the more likely date it was drawn.
