Saturday, September 1, 1962


Damage at DesVoeux Road, probably also Typhoon Wanda (1962).

The building with the fallen scaffolding would become the Liu Chong Hing Bank Building (first generation) at 24 Des Voeux Road Central. Probaly constructed in 1963. Now called the Chong Hing Bank Centre since the erection of the second generation building in 2006. Have added in the names of the buildings in the vicinity.

I've updated the date from 1950 to 1962, to fit with Typhoon Wanda.
