'Near Aberdeen, Hong Kong.' [China]

Aberdeen is a village on the south side of Hong Kong island. Its local name Heung Kong Tsai or Hong Kong Tsai (Little Hong Kong) is thought to be the origin of the name 'Hong Kong' ('fragrant harbour') for the whole island, owing to misunderstanding by Westerners who first landed there and applied it to the whole. Its English name dates to 1845, after Lord Aberdeen, then British Secretary of State for War and the Colonies. This view is probably of the area now called Waterfall Bay Park, just north-west of Aberdeen Harbour and Ap Lei Chau island, looking up to the Peak of Hong Kong Island in the distance. One of the early attractions of Hong Kong for Western ships was the easy accessibility of fresh water on the coast from falls like this.
