I came across this image on Flickr it has a title of Alves Terrace, Tsim Sha Tsui. I have been unable to find any other reference to Alves Terrace but I suddlenly remembered one of my previous posts regarding a man named Alves. Alves worked for the treasury department and was charged with taking money illegally, money which it was said he used to build Victoria View Terrace. Looking at this information together with the photograph previously posted by Moddsey on the 1900's Tsim Sha Tsui thread I think that Alves Terrace and Victoria View Terrace are the same building. If you agree, I think there is enough information now to have a definate title for the Victoria View Terrace thread.
