Can anyone help and identify the building shown in the Photograph. Unknown date possibly 1930s

Many thanks

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Wednesday, January 1, 1930


May be Whitfield Barracks.

Many thanks for the information. It seems that this place has had a long history.

Hi There,

Some of those buildings still exist today.  Please see the long buildings with tiles in Orange in the URL.  They have been refurbished and re-purposed.


Thank you very much for the info. I have looked at the Discovery Centre and can see what you mean. It seems to be a good conversion of an old building. Worthwhile for the local inhabitats and visitors to HK
