1950s view over Sai Ying Pun

1950s view over Sai Ying Pun
Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Saturday, January 1, 1955


The building on the upper slopes of the Peak, east side, (bottom right of picture) is 41 Conduit Road gardens upper level. You can see the pavilion where Han Suyin and Ian Morrison did their courting.

In the 1950s this was the site of the Foreign Correspondents Club.


Well spotted, I've added that to "Places Shown", and also the Tsan Yuk hospital visible under the "o" of the watermark. I'll come back to this photo in future to look at it in more detail, and also to compare it with a couple of earlier views we have of this area.
