Sunday, January 1, 1950


Wasn't Embassy Court in Hysan Avenue, Causeway Bay,?

Next to the Sunning House Hotel or thereabouts.

Yes it was. Created a place for it close to the hotel

From recollection, Embassy Court was the base for Zung Fu Motors the Mecedes Benz car dealers, the offices of Civil Air Transport (CAT), the CIA backed Taiwan based airline that ran scheduled services passing through Hong Kong, and either the offices or home of Eric Cumine the well-known architect.

The radio mast on the roof may have come in useful!
