Yes -the Hilton Hotel and the government car-park were built on Murray Parade Ground. Beaconsfield House was built on a site further to the west, opposite the HKSB. There was an old building in between which eventually housed the Cheero Club.
Any one remember the Michalmas Fairs held on the Murray Parade Ground. I remember being astonished at the size of a penny piece after handling HK coinage for a year or two.
Ah, I am talking 1950 - end 1953
