Above the Western hongs or ‘Factories’ are the flags of (l. to r.) Denmark, (pre-Revolutionary) France, the Austro-Hungarian empire, Sweden, Britain and the Netherlands. The ‘Imperial’ flag, with its double-headed eagle, was first seen on the quayside in 1779; the portico of the British hong had been widened in the preceding year (compare no.74). See Paul A. Van Dyke and Maria Kar-wing Mok, Images of the Canton Factories 1760–1822, forthcoming in autumn 2015.
