1930s Unknown location

The notes on Flickr say "Somewhere in Wanchai, can anyone help to identify?".

The building in the foreground on the right has a distinctive wall - does it trigger anyone's memories?

Hi there,

Wow, this is an old one.  Look at the lamp post next to the men in white and the lack of vehicles save the one in the background......

Best Regards,


I'm thinking that wall on the right would be part of the Sailors & Soldiers Home, but the shape doesn't match the photo below. Was there another big building further along Anton Street?
