There is a quite large area without buildings still in 1947. Its the area north of Mody Road, east of Hanoi Road, and south of Cameron Road. Today Prat Avenue and a branch of Hart Avenue run across this empty field, and of course many houses built there, probably in the 1950's or 1960's.
Just wonder why this field remained vacant since the 1890's.
