Old shop houses Li Chit street

Probably somewhere fairly close to the prevous photograph.  These were some of the surviving pre-war buildings.  I wonder how many of them are still there.

Date picture taken (may be approximate):

Hi There,

This one is easy as the Chinese Methodist Church (The triangular block where Hennessy Road meets Johnston Road on th ewest end) at the far end gave the location away.   The street is call Le Chit Street (李節街).  All the shophouses on both sides of the street had been demolished.

I have to say most of the shop houses in town are already gown.  Very few individual blocks remains.


Hi T

Many thanks for locating the street.  I'll alter the title.  Best wishes Andrew
