Description

Fine large map of Victoria, Hong Kong, with an inset map of Hong Kong at the bottom right corner.

The map is oriented with South at the top.

The chart embraces part of the northern shore of Hong Kong Island, running from the Victoria Barracks and Wellington Barracks in the West, to to the China Merchant's Wharf and University of Hong Kong. The mapping of the urban areas are very detailed, labeling every street and showing the outline of all major buildings and facilities.

In Victoria we see the outlines of numerous important public buildings, including Government House, City Hall, and the Murray Barracks, as well as the great private mansions that graced the mid levels above the town. Victoria Peak is shown, schematically rising above the city. Immediately to the east of Victoria, beyond the Cricket Ground, is the Royal Navy Yard, the headquarters of the British navy in East Asia.

A finely detailed city plan, with advertising and title in Chinese.
