1930's Kowloon Park | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong

1930's Kowloon Park

1930's Kowloon Park

Here's a puzzle for Moddsey! The picture shows my mother Peggy, sitting in the pram and her older sister Patsy standing next to her. On the back of the photo are the words "Peggy and Patsy - Kowloon Park".Is it really?

My mother was born on June 25th on the Peak - can anyone place the buildings behind the girls. I think I can make out one or two 'black & white' amahs? It also looks quite cold. I suppose it might be November or December 1930?

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Tuesday, December 1, 1936


The building behind is the Peninsula Hotel. The park is the Middle Road children's park below Signal Hill.

Brilliant Moddsey - I suspect the reference on the back of the photo was referring to 'a park in Kowloon' then, rather than to a specific Park. Thanks a lot!

Here is the overhead view of the park from Signal Hill taken in the mid 1930s.
