Lyton House [????-????]
There's a mention in the The China Mail, 1949-01-25, page 4, where:
"S D Woo, assistant manager of the Lyton House, 32-38 Mody Road was fined $100..."
The problem was that the plans submitted to the government showed less rooms than the hotel actually contained.
Regarding the hotel in the foreground of this photo, my friend said the following:
"Yes, it was Lyton House Hotel where I lived from 1956 to the late 1960s. I think it was #4 Mody Road. This was my father's hotel which catered to British Army officers exclusively."
Physically, it was located on Mody Road. I have visited him many times at this hotel. What a great photo to recall my childhood memory standing on that top floor balcony!!!
