Cropped from 1945 Racecourse 

Shows (from right to left) Tiger Balm Garden Pagoda, the platform above Tai Hang Road (empty at the place where Grandview Mansions will be built in 1955), and the platform below Tai Hang Road (=mystery building).

On top of the latter one, a house stands on the upper section of the round structure.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Saturday, September 1, 1945


The row of buildings on the ridge to the left of the Tiger Balm garden’s pagoda is almost certainly the blocks of flats on Wang Fung Terrace used by the R.A.F. in 1945/6 and shown in Jack Cubitt’s gallery in the 367 Association gallery. Andrew
