Twentieth Century Impressions of Hongkong, Shanghai, and other Treaty Ports of China/Hongkong/S. W. Tso
MR. S. W. TSO.—For some time there was only one Chinese solicitor practising in Hongkong—Mr. Tso Seen Wan, or, as he is more generally known amongst Europeans, Mr. S. W. Tso. He was born at Macao, and received his education in England at Cheltenham College from 1886 to 1890. After having served articles with a firm of solicitors at Cheltenham and London he qualified as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of England in 1896. In the same year he returned to Hongkong, and was admitted as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of the Colony. Amongst the Chinese he does a great deal of work, and has come to be regarded by them in much the same light as the Hon. Dr. Ho Kai—as a friend and adviser in foreign matters, quite as much as professional practitioner. Mr. Tso is highly respected among all sections of the community.
