Exchange Building / Exchange House / Telephone House / Lane Crawford House [1926-1977]
14, Des Voeux Road.
The building opened in 1926, and was the site of Lane Crawford's new store. Lane Crawford moved here from their Ice House Street premises, and occupied the lower two floors. (Source: newspaper clipping)
Brian has posted a photo of the building (see photo 3b).
Does anyone know when it was demolished?
This 1960s map shows the building on this site is called 'Telephone House', but still houses Lane Crawford. I'm not sure if it is the same building, re-named, or a later building.
