Whampoa, from Dane's Island
The principle anchorage for foreign vessels lay between Whampoa Island on the north side, and Dane’s and French Islands on the south. In 1756 Dane’s Island at Whampoa was appointed ‘for the English Seamen to walk and divert themselves upon, and French Island for the French’. This view was taken from Dane’s Island, looking towards Whampoa. Most ships docked on the southern end of the island of Whampoa, with the Whampoa pagoda. To the left is French Island.
