Notes

University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: Ep01-746. In the foreground is the meterological signal tower (Gutzlaff Signal Tower). The large building (with dome) is the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation. Note the late-stage construction of the Custom House clock tower, completed in 1927. Very detailed aerial views of Shanghai and the Bund probably photographed from a military plane during 1927 Shanghai Defence Force deployment.
