15-19, Queen's Road Central.

Some notes I've found about this building:

1935. The 3rd Dec edition of the HK Telegraph reports that Marina House is complete:

"With every modern convenience and imposing in design, the new building next to the Hongkong Hotel in Queen's Road Central, to be called "Marina House", is now completed and will be ready for tenants to move in on January 1, 1936.

How to use gwulo.com to find old Hong Kong friends and photos?

I received this question by e-mail, and with Peter's permission have copied it here:

Dear David,

I have just subscribed to Gwulo. I would like to find out if any other subscribers went to the Peak School and/or lived at Peak Mansions during the late 50s and early 60s, and if they have any photos. I am not sure how to go about this or even if your website is designed for this kind of exchange. Any pointers would be much appreciated.

Best wishes,
