Police Station, the Peak, Hong Kong Island, c.1875-80.This small Police Stationwas designated ''No.6 Police Station'' and was located on a small hill off the Peak Road, near Victoria Gap. It would be replaced, in 1886, by the Mount Gough Police Station. Although some development of the Peak began soon after the first path to the Peak was cut in 1859, it was not until the late 1870s that residing on the Peak became popular, though most dwellings were little more than summer bungalows. The residential development increased rapidly with the opening of the Peak Tramways in 1888.
