FCC – classic colonial HK photograph

imagePhotograph (©FCC) taken in the 1970s from the 14th floor of Sutherland House, an office block in the heart of Hong Kong, then home of the Foreign Correspondents’ Club (FCC). The men’s room, noted John le Carré, “provided the Club’s best view of the harbour” in his 1977 masterpiece, The Honourable Schoolboy.

The photograph is currently displayed in the men’s room of the current FCC on Ice House Street, Central (where your host attended a lunch today!).
