An early photograph of the Hong Kong ferry Heung-Shan moored at Macao. On the river in the foreground there is a lot of activity with people on sampans.
At the time pirates in the Pearl River would have made this a risky journey between Hong Kong and Macau, even on a large steam boat. A contrast to the modern day high speed Turbocat which gets you there in one hour.
