The imposing white building below Mt Nicholson was the St Albert's Priory, later know as Rosary Hill, which was built that year. There also appears to a large obelisk above the Zooastrian cemetery, which I've not see before. Sports Road in foreground.

Thanks for the St Albert's info. I've added that to the Places Shown.

I think the white obelisk is probably just a scratch on the photo, at least I can't see anything similar on this Harrison Forman photo.

The field area in foreground of the photo is part of the old Police Recreation Club(PRC).The square lawn bowls green clearly set up for play in the summer months;in winter months the whole ground was used for HK league cricket.All disappeared late 70s/early 80s as the Jockey Club (racecourse et al) expanded ,redeveloped in a big way.
