A view of Hong Kong Island seen across the harbour from Kowloon. Five covered hulks - obsolete wooden ships with most of their rigging removed, which were adapted for use for accommodation, storage or hospital purposes - can be seen in the harbour. Of these the three larger ships fly the white ensign of the (British) Royal Navy, which used these vessels as ‘receiving ships’; the right-hand covered ship flies the distinctively quartered flag of the Peninsular and Oriental Steamship Company (P&O). Familiar landmarks on the shore include St John’s Cathedral, Government House, and the Roman Catholic Cathedral; on the left are the godowns of Jardine, Matheson, with their residence on a small hill above.
