Notes

University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: Sw08-142. G W Swire referenced each negative in this album with the prefix H written in India ink. This negative is referenced H64. The album itself has also been archived at some stage with the reference 62/VI. Butterfield & Swire’s office was completed in 1936. It was sometimes incorrectly referred to as the Chartered Bank building as the bank leased the ground floor for a branch office. Immediately behind this building B&S had a large godown, completed in 1922. The B&S office and godown are located in what was the southern end of the general business district. See Sw08-140 and Sw08-141.
