About this work

Description

"The favourite places for recreation for European residents -- civilians, official or commercial, and military, with their ladies and families -- at Victoria, Hong-Kong, are the Hollywood Road and the Kennedy Road, which command good views of the harbour and shipping from their elevated situation up the rocky slope of the hill range behind the city and seaport. A correspondent who lately visited Hong-Kong, and some of whose amusing sketches of the Chinese and other inhabitants were published in our last number, contributes the pleasant illustration of a scene one fine afternoon on the Kennedy Road. The ladies are easily carried up on portable chairs, beside which the gentlemen can walk and talk with them, and the fresh sea-breeze is very enjoyable up there." -- Uren, loc. cit.
