House on May Road (seems to be the house on the photo titled "Old Peak Road 1919 - from Branksome Towers"). My grandparents P. Marks and M.G. Marks-Groot (from the Netherlands; my grandfather worked for the Dutch Indoes Trade Bank in Hong Kong, the Nederlandsch Indische Handelsbank) at that time (autumn of 1925) lived nearby in Tregunter Mansions on 2, May Road. They has been swiming in the pool which was at the left of that house and they wrote that the tennis court on the right was owned by the flats owner. Dates are approximate but in November 1925.

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
Thursday, November 12, 1925
