Scarce early image of Hong Kong, published in London in  about 1845, from The History of China & India, Pictorial & Descriptive, By Miss Corner.

Victoria peak dominates the image, towering over the early view of the harbor, with Chinese boats in the foreground and a steam vessel and sailing ships closer to shore.  The village of Victoria hugs the shoreline, with a few buildings on hill tops.
