Any ideas what that old building was? (Or where, I can't spot where we're looking at.)
Good to see there were still patches of low-rise and greenery in mid-levels.
That looks like Conduit Road in the upper part of the photograph.
This was just after I arrived in Hong Kong and my company put me in a leave flat - I think it was 62 Robinson Road. I hope that may help you to pinpoint that old building.
One may be looking at the old buildings that graced the former Seymour Terrace as shown here and here
I've spotted a building I recognise - up at the top, slightly left of centre is a very skinny building. That's Ivory Court on Conduit Road, matching Ian and Cliff's descriptons. I guess the old building is on or near the site of today's Elegant Terrace.
I've found the old building on a 1986 map. It's 57, Robinson Road.
I walked down Robinson Road this morning and Elegant Terrace is No. 61. But the building next door (extreme bottom left of photograph) still exists and is No. 55.
