University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: Ep01-746. In the foreground is the meteorological signal tower (Gutzlaff Signal Tower). The large building (with dome) is the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation. Note the late-stage construction of the Custom House clock tower, completed in 1927.
