ChineseTown1926.png | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong



This picture shows the Chinese town (as my grandmother named it on the back of the photo) with a lot of damage due to the water's power after a major 1926 typhoon had hit the city.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Friday, January 1, 1926


The photo shows the aftermath of the rainstorm that affected Hill Road in July 1926. From the National Archives. See here

Hi There,

The stream is still there but had gone underground at Hill Road.  But it is still uncovered above HKU..  I remember it still floods a few years ago during a severe rain storm  flooding the campus.  Some of the water follow foot paths and came down from the foot bridge across the road.  Should be quite a scene if you are in the area when it happened.
