Dransfields&Warrens_at_matshed.jpg | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong

This is apparently a matshed at Stanley Beach. I've read that there were only five. Perhaps this was a matshed belonging to the Taikoo Sugar Refinery, the company for which Albert Dransfield worked. He is sitting left front next to Cicely Warren. His wife, Laura, is behind him next to her daughter, Dorothy. My uncle, Leslie Warren is at the back on the left. The Warren children would be about two and four respectively, dating the picture to 1928 or 1929. Albert seems to have a dachsund on a lead. Everyone seems very well dressed for a day at the beach.


Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Sunday, January 1, 1928
