1907 Tsim Sha Tsui (East of Nathan Road)

1907 Tsim Sha Tsui (East of Nathan Road)

Cropped from a multi-view postcard of 1900s Kowloon. I think the large building in the centre is the rear view of the terraced building that fronts Nathan Road located between Mody and Carnarvon Roads. Carnarvon Road runs in towards Nathan Road at top right. The view from this section can be viewed here. The road system in Tsim Sha Tsui is under development. Mody Road is in the centre with many buildings yet to be built. Corrections are welcome.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Tuesday, January 1, 1907


1920 map seen at hkmaps.hk. One block at Nathan Road, four small houses in the back section, possibly servants quarters. The eastern part of K.I.L. 609 is empty, both on the map and the photo.

I'm quite sure that on the photo below the same houses are just north of Mody Road on Nathan Road.

In the 1920s, houses have been built also the eastern part of K.I.L. 609 .
