Tennis | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong


Primary tabs


I saw some other photos of tennis courts and was wondering if anyone can identify this location. I'm not possitive that it's Hong Kong, because the family had intersts in Malaya and also moved to Shanghai around 1919. The thatched buildings may give a clue

Tuesday, January 1, 1918


I've seen other photos of similar thatched buildings taken in Hong Kong.

I wonder if the hill in the background is Lion Rock, which would place the tennis court around the numerous clubs in Tsim Sha Tsui. See these photos from the 1930s:
