Could that be Kennedy Town to the left ? What road could that be to the right ?

Thank you very much

Assuming the mass in the middle distance is the Tsim Sha Tsui peninsula with Hung Hom bay behind and to the right, then I think this is more likely to be today's Central - perhaps over to where Admiralty station now stands? Just a guess mind you based on those assumptions. It would be handy to know what the building with the tower is.

Agree with Phil that we see the old Naval Yard on the right hand side. The tower can be seen here:

The road on this photo seems to be the same as the one on Daniel's photo. Garden Road??

thanks Klaus. In that case perhaps the road is the original Kennedy Road where it curves north above HK Park?

The line of trees on the waterfront on the left is the edge of the Cricket Ground. Garden Road is on the left of the Barracks.
I believe the road on the right is Kennedy Road.
