'Sixty Diamond Jubilee Pictures of Hong Kong', 1897 (CO 1069/450)’. The author and publisher of Sixty Diamond Jubilee Pictures of Hong Kong 1837 1897 was Robert Crisp Hurley; the photographers are not named. The Hong Kong Club is considered the first gentlemen's club in Hong Kong. It was founded in 1846 on Queen's Road and moved to a new building on Jackson Road in 1897. The scaffolding on the right and the construction materials in front of the building suggest that this photograph was taken shortly before completion of the building.
