Aberdeen was one of the areas of Hong Kong which I visited on my first trip to China.  Aberdeen in on the southern coast of Hong Kong Island, and is (was) a fishing village with many people living in traditional Chinese junks.

Aberdeen is also home to a couple of large floating restaurants.  The Jumbo Kingdom, shown above, can seat over 2,000 diners at one time.

The picture on which this painting was based was scanned from a slide taken in 1987 and is shown below.
