e) Hill Bergdahl (sp?)

Our article, The German Speaking Community in Hong Kong 1846-1918 – Part Two, contains a very brief mention of the company Hill Bergdahl (I think this is how it was spelt but I may be wrong), ” The aerated water firm…was liquidated in 1914.” (2)

f) The Royal Aerated Water Manufactory Co.

The History of the Hong Kong Printing Press website states, in “1910 – Pedro [A. Xavier] became a Director of the Royal Aerated Water Manufactory Co. (3)

gwulo.com has a Francis Paul Danenberg, Manager of Royal Aerated Manufactory, in its Jurors List published in the Hongkong Government Gazette on 19th Feb, 1904. (4)

    Well ! Thank you so much Mr. Hugh Farm. The Connaught Aerated Water Company was established in 1904. The Royal Aerated Waters Manufactory was first appeared on newspaper in 1904. The name of Hill Bergdahl & Co. is corrected. Bye!
