Sketch Plan of the Peak 1912
Sketch Plan of the Peak 1912, by Klaus


hi, I originally posted this and the addition to Wanchai Gap area as two parts.

I am looking at the original. The handwriiten notes were done by my father as this sketch was in his HK parafinalia.


Just in front of the annotation "Stolzeweels" is  the buidling "Modreenagh". This was the first building of its name and belonged to HK Telephone Company. My father was billeted there in the 1920's as a batchelor. It was destroyed during the war and rebuilt as 118 & 119 The Peak. My family and I lived at 119. Opposite was - and still is Jardine's Bridge. 118 & 119 were demolished in the 1960's to make way for a block of flats (Modreenagh No 2) which have also been demolished and rebuilt as Modreenagh No3. I imagine still HK Telephone Co?? To the right was the Peak Club now the site of The Peak School - I merely had to cross the road to get there from the back gate which still exists!
