This is a painting of the signing of the 'Treaty of Nanking' which ended the first Opium War! In this treaty the Qing government had to pay Britan six MILLION silver dollars for the confiscated Opium, plus 3 million dollars in debts and finally 12 million dollars for the cost of the war. Also, Hong Kong became a 'Crown Colony'(a type of colonial administration). (MS)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Nanking#

Hong Kong was created and founded on August 1842 when the Treaty of Nanking was made. This is a picture representing the signing of this treaty. This treaty ended the Opium war with Great Britain and China.
