1900s Elgin Road | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong

1900s Elgin Road

1900s Elgin Road

On Flickr attributed to the 1920s, but Elgin Road became Haiphong Road already in 1909. Possibly taken from Robinson/Nathan Road. 

There is a gas lamp in front of the houses. Public Works Report for 1982 states the erection of gas lamps on this road.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Monday, January 1, 1900

It looks as if we can see the same long row of houses on Elgin/Haiphong Road on both photos. These houses should be the block visible at K.I.L. 213 on the 1896 map. And the photographer wasn't as far away as Nathan Road but near the Kowloon Hotel. 

Update:taken  still more to the west near Canton Road.
