Edward Ashworth, a well-regarded English architect and surveyor, travelled to the colonies in the 1840s, making important visual records of the settlements of Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland and Hong Kong. In 1842 he left London on the ship Tuscan, first arriving in Australia and then on to Auckland, New Zealand. In May 1844 he sailed on the American ship, Navigator, visiting Macau on his way to Hong Kong, a new colony of the British Empire. He lived in Hong Kong from 1844 to 1845, where he recorded some of the earliest buildings. While in China he also made studies of buildings, architectural details and street scenes in Canton and Macau. Ref: SLNSW, Wiki.
