Sheung Wan/Hong Kong Island
Western District (Sheung Wan) and the Harbour, Hong Kong Island, c.1870.
An early photograph, taken before the completion of the first reclamation in 1873. The street in the middle is Queen's Road West. The western-style building, on the extreme left, is Ko Shing Theatre, popular at the time with patrons of Chinese opera. Closely packed poorly constructed tenement houses are clearly seen, making the area susceptible to outbreaks of fire and later plague epidemics.
