French trading companies in Hong Kong 1918-1941
Dr. François Drémeaux, Honorary Professor, Department of History, The University of Hong Kong, is currently working on the presence of French companies in Hong Kong during the interwar period. He has kindly sent three charts showing a selection of these companies.
The third one shows: The main French trading houses in Hong Kong (1918-1941)
The earlier articles are linked below.
I have copied the company names below the chart so that we can add information if and when it comes in, or links to Indhhk articles when they are posted.
I have been unable to find an image of any of the companies noted whilst in Hong Kong. Can someone do so and/or provide information about the company?
