That looks like Sir Thomas Jackson's statue (http://gwulo.com/node/8222) in the background.

Yes, taken outside the HSBC. Given the grainy photo print am not too sure about the date though.

Hi Joseph,

The Chinese caption says 'Engineering Tram Derailed In Front Of HSBC Building'. Presumably this is why the odd tram remained single deck, as a service vehicle.

Hi Wayne,

Engineering tram generally is non-passenger service. The earlier single deckers presumbly had gone soonest replaced by the double deckers.

I have written an article describing all the HK engineering trams in an overseas magazine.
