Taikoo reservoir

Taikoo reservoir

Reservoir above Quarry Bay village, in the valley between Woodside / Mt Parker Rd and Stanley Terrace. Village male residents in the 1940-50s used to swim naked in a pool below the overflow. Structure is the shooting platform farthest from targets (which were up the valley), for a rifle range used occasionally mainly by the police.
