The present work can be dated circa 1847 - 1856, thanks to the Anglican church visible to the right, land for which was acquired in 1847. The church and the fenced-off gardens replaced the pagodas of views of Canton predating the First Opium War. In 1856 a great fire destroyed the remaining hongs (here visible flying flags), which were never rebuilt.
