Notes

University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: Sw17-023. Khaki cloth Kodak Negative Album, 12 cm x 16 cm. 134 negatives (sized 92mm x 147mm). The album was labelled P2/IX on the back cover.  The cable car ran up to Quarry Gap, the pass between Mount Parker and Mount Butler. Old maps show the pass named Sanatorium Gap, which explains the need for a cable car: up at the Gap, situated to catch the cool breeze in summer, stood the Taikoo Sanatorium (see  Sw07-124). See article by Jennnifer Field Lang at http://industrialhistoryhk.org/aerial-ropeway-1891-1932-sanitarium-1893-1932-taikoo-sugar-refinery/. The cable car pylons can also be seen in Sw05-129.
