I question whether there were "Central Government Offices" in 1910.  This building was more likely referred to as the "Colonial Secretariat".

China Mail 27 August 1954

Workmen unearthed the foundation stone of the original building which had been demolished in 1954. A bronze plaque in florid characters indicated the foundation stone was laid on _?_th day of February, 1847 by Governor Davis with Major Aldrich, Commanding Royal Engineer in attendance.
