Thank you for posting the ARP photos.
My first impression is that the view is of Canton Road. The waste ground in front would later become the King George V Memorial Park at the junction of Canton and Jordan Roads. Update: Appears that the daylight exercises took place on Sunday,17 December 1939 in the Yaumati district with Steele-Perkins and Governor Northcote in attendance. The area below at the time was known as Jubilee Park.
A similar view.
