Little is known about the British photographer, William Pryor Floyd, who had a photography studio in Macau and Hong Kong in the latter part of the 1800s. Beginning in the 16th century, Macau was under Portuguese control, and became a bustling, multi-cultural city and an important trading port with India, Southern China, Japan and Southeast Asia. The images of the panoramas and individual sites in this album capture a combination of the beauty and exotic characteristics of this place in the late 19th century.
