Under British rule since 1842, in the eighteenth and nineteenth century Hong Kong became one of the greatest trade ports in the East. The present view depicts a busy harbour, with clippers, steam boats and Chinese sampans. This work would appear to predate 1861, which is when the flag tower was installed on Victoria Peak (compare with the view in lot 13).
