PA170942.JPG | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong



Bicton house as it was in the 1920s. The photo comes from my father's album. He lived there as a boy from around 1920 to 1926 when he returned to school in England. My grandfather, Stuart Seguin Strahan, bought the house from Arne Sorenson in 1920, lived there with his wife Olivia until 1939, and sold it some time after WWII.



The house still exists and looks relatively unaltered. There is a place for it on Gwulo here

The Jurors List for 1926 still gives Arne Schou-Sorensen's address as Bicton, 127 The Peak. Shouldn't this already have been 366 The Peak according to the 1924 number change? Does the Jurors List tend to lag behind developments?
