Amazing find! Thanks to Kalvin and your group. I look forward to more information.

I wonder if more City of Victoria boundary stones remain undiscovered. I vaguely remember Mr. Walter Chu (朱維德) mentioned in one of his books that there used to be one on Causeway Road which was the shoreline in the 1950s. It would have been long gone.

Hi There,

It's in the news.  Another team found two stones on the same day.

The one close to the Rosary Hill School had been put onto the Internet since 2007 after the Magazine Gap stone disappeared.  The other one is on Mount Davis.

The older maps could be found in HKMS 2.0.  I tried the 1:2400 set (1954-1974) and most of the ones dated 1960's show the city boundary alright.  The logic of the finds was that there might be a marker where the former city boundary had a sharp turn along the contour.
