The Hillier Collection consists of 54 images, recording the family’s long and distinguished presence in China. Walter, Harry and Guy Hillier pursued careers in three key institutions of Britain’s informal empire in China: the Consular Service, the Chinese Maritime Customs (CMCS) and the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank.
