Huangpu, in the Guanghzou region of China. Published in the 'Naval Chronicle' in 1802, where it was described as 'a small but populous village, pleasantly situated on the eastern bank of the Pe-kiang river, about twenty miles below the city of Canton'. It was the docking area for many nations trading with China in the 18th century and was the site of a battle between Chinese and British forces in 1841 during the Opium Wars.
