This is a photo of our house on the Peak in the 1950's - 1960's.  It was 174 The Peak and later changed to 71 Mount Kellett Road.  I believe units are now built there - sadly.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Sunday, June 24, 1956

Hi Alison,

Thanks for the new photos. I've linked them to the building's page at: https://gwulo.com/node/8889

You'll see that page is almost empty, so I wonder if you know anything about the building's history, eg when it was built and any other owners?

Regards, David

Hi David, 

All I know about the building is that was the home of the General Manager of BGEC since the 1950’s and probably before that. My father was GM until 1963 and then a couple of others took over before the house was sold to a Chinese businessman- I assume it was he who sold it to the developer who subsequently tore it down.  It was still there in the early 1990’s and each time I return to HK I go up there on a little memory lane trip!
