1951 King's Road, North Point

Interesting view of the long straight section of King's Road, North Point probably taken from Winner House (310 King's Road). To be verified. No sign yet of the tram lines that curve into North Point Road. The original photo can be viewed here .

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Monday, January 1, 1951


A rare view prior to the opening of North Point terminus on 21 December 1953, hence no sign of the curved track turned in North Point Road.


Similar view, showing completion of the building at the corner of North Point Road. Another floor has been added to the building on the left.

There's an odd little stand-alone building on the corner. Any ideas what it was?
