Before there was Wellcome we had Dairy Lane, Causeway Bay. I'm glad to see that the trees have survived to this day
All the old trees are already gone, I could not recall when. The trees shown in the photo had been deteriorating since the 1970's anyway. Somebody planted a few young tree a bit closer to Park Lane Hotel. Let's hope the new trees could survive the smog.
I think some old trees survived until the late 1990s or even early 2000s. They were right at the edge of the pavement.
