Anybody spot what's missing....no it's not been doctored...no traffic!

The view to Nairn House.Anyone remember the shops on the right,just out of picture, I recall there used to be a cake shop there...Maria's?

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Sunday, July 1, 1962


I am flabbergasted - used to live there...and they are sytill there and occupied by HK Govt employees..!

Hi Brian,

There are some more photos of Nairn House at:


If you can add any more they'll be very welcome. Here's how:

The cake shop was Cherikoff. We used it quite frequently, as we lived across the road in Waterloo road just off the photo on the left hand side in the late 1950s.  Lovely photograph. Things got more lively when the flyover was built.



Nairn House are the high rise white buildings for Government employees. The clock tower would be the China Light & Power office building on Argyle Street opposite from Nairn House.

Wow, I lived around the corner on the left in Dunbar Road from 1960 to 1963. I don't remember the cake shop but I do remember a pub called the Golden Keg where my parents used to drink!

I used to get the number 7 bus to school at St George's from the bus stop on the right!!

memories flooding back....
