Hai Ching piracy-loanedalbum on display at HK Maritime Museum

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 

An album I acquired about 40 years ago is on display at the Hong Kong Maritime Museum open at one of the Hai Ching piracy image pages. Difficult to photograph in its glass case and low lighting.

The whole album is from an HMS KENT China Squadron cruise.

It has been on display ever since the museum opened to the public
