The Hongkong Rope Manufacturing Co., Ltd – images from c1908

HF These images of The Hongkong Rope Manufacturing Co., Ltd come come from Twentieth Century Impressions of Hongkong…published in 1908. The name of the company in the book is given as “Manufactory” but it appears to have been more usually known by the former name.

I have given the same title to each image as appears in the book.

Many thanks to IDJ for extracting and realigning the images.
