Hong Kong - harbour, construction, family

Item is an amateur film from Douglas Scott's time living in Hong Kong which variously captures a large crowd standing on a dock by a large steam ship in a harbour; panning views of junks and sampans on the water; local laborers being served food; expatriates and local laborers at a construction site; Margaret standing by the Scott's Hong Kong home; a large ship departing from a harbour, with nearby buses and a Texaco station visible; Scott family members posing for the camera; and a view of Hong Kong streets from a tall building.

R. Murdock, Felix, Mac

Item is an amateur film which captures what appears to be the so-called "man without a country" George Dibbern and his boat, La Rapunga, with its "citizen of the world" flag. The film also captures Inner Harbour (Victoria, B.C.) and the Empress Hotel; various sailboats; a man (again perhaps George Dibbern) hula dancing and climbing the rigging on his boat; Margaret and a young boy sailing on a catboat; and various boats.
