Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Sunday, May 2, 1954


Hi there,

The old Cricket Club is visible in this photo.  That would mean the photographer was also on the Northern Slope of the Hong Kong Island.  Should be a bit higher than Kennedy Road for this one.

Best Regards,



Is that the Bowen Road Military Hospital (Island School) in the trees at the bottom right? which means the picture would have been taken from somewhere up Magazine Gap.

Looks like the former BMH through the trees. A similar shot taken from Magazine Gap.

Great shot Moddsey,

I think the 1954 image is of the east wing, not the west wing, the corner stairwells are smaller.
