The postcard shows the image of Pokfulam Reservoir which is the oldest reservoir in Hong Kong. The construction of the reservoir commenced in 1860 and water supplies began to reach the city at the end of 1863, making it the very first public reservoir in Hong Kong. It was connected by an aqueduct along Conduit Road to two tanks above Tai Ping Shan to provide water supplies to Central and Western districts. The building of the Béthanie and Imprimerie de Nazareth in the far background.
