Beautiful, Rare, Genuine, Frameable photo of The Cemetery and Racecourse at Hong Kong in 1866 published by the Illustrated London News. The Hong Kong Cemetery was opened in 1845 when Happy Valley was considered too far from town and too mosquito-ridden ever to be needed as building land. The first graves date back even earlier and were moved to Happy Valley in 1889 when Hong Kongs earliest cemetery in Wanchai was finally closed in 1889. The first monument found belongs to Lieutenant Benjamin Fox who died on 25th May, 1841 of wounds received when the British forces stormed the walls of Canton during the First Opium War.Hong Kong Cemetery was the burial place for all the Protestant and Nonconformist dead for over one hundred years. The Cemetery is a beautiful, inspiring and peaceful place and more importantly it is a significant source of material for students of Hong Kongs heritage as well as those with a general interest particularly in the fields of history, sociology, genealogy and architecture. This is a rare colored detailed photo. The photo is finished off with a title cartouche. The photograph size is 8 1/2 X 11 1/4. This is part of the Kit Kapp Collection.
