in 1965, it was at 19A Lock Road,Kowloon.

Thanks, Doug.

I see that a bit earlier in November 1941 it was at 15 Hangkow Road and owned it seems by a Robert Leigh who was then granted a liquor licence. Probably still there when I took the pic.

The poster in the background advertises a film about the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

Was the Blue Peter Pub located in the same area? I seem to remember it was a popular place for seamen to have a quick drink before getting to their ship by walla-walla. The Blue Peter flag signifies a ship is sailing in 24 hours.

I found a mention of a Blue Peter Cafe at 98 Nathan Road in 1948: http://books.google.com.hk/books?id=SgouAQAAIAAJ&q=%22blue+peter%22+hong...

I'm not sure if it is related to the pub or not.

Today's 98 Nathan Road is on the SE corner of the junction with Granville Road.
