Unknown building - kowloon ????

Another idea? Together with other Tsim Sha Tsui photo which I posted recently, so probably it could be taken in Tsim Sha Tsui as well......

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Sunday, January 1, 1905


The building says "Patell Villas" at the top.

The 1900 Jurors list has a Patell entry:

Was he Parsee? Perhaps a dynastic fortress in TST :-)

From HKGRO: Patell Villas was situated on the west side of Hankow Road (35-39) past Peking Road and Ichang Street towards Haiphong Road. Probably in the rise between Ashley and Hankow Roads. 

Nice find Moddsey. So do you think the building faced south towards the harbour?

I think one needs a map to register that. If I were a betting man, probably facing east.
