Map of the area described here. Map is part of the 1902-3 8-inch series, reproduced in the "Mapping Hong Kong" book.
When the map was made, the road from the junction marked with the red dot ran northwest to Carnarvon Road, and east to today's Chatham Road. The road was named East Road. The road heading west from the junction to today's Nathan Road looks like it was planned but not yet built, as there is a building right in the middle of the road!
You'll also see Chatham Road was called Des Voeux Road at that time, and Nathan Road was called Robinson Road.
By the 1924 map, today's names are in use:
- The East-West road is complete, the obstructing house has disappeared, and the road is now named Mody Road.
- The short orphaned northwest section of the old East Road changed to today's name, Hanoi Road.
- Des Voeux and Robinson Roads are renamed to Chatham and Nathan Roads, respectively.
