1924 map of Kowloon, scale: 8 inches to one mile.

Reproduced in plate 4-4 of the 'Mapping Hong Kong' book.

Date picture taken


  Unfortunately this map is not detailed enough solve the  mystery of Cox's Path lower and upper, but what is interesting is that the grounds and building of Chater's Bungalow are well dilineated just south of Austin Rd. and spanned where Hillwood Road would later be placed. What a piece of real estate that musthave been!!

  Are more detailed maps available of this area and era? I guess it would mean a visit to the archives.

Hi there,

If you zoom in to the maximum and move to the right, at the edge you should be able to see the Hung Hom Station marked closed to the present day History Museum.

Back then there were more train stations along the way.

Best Regards,


80skid, any chance you can re-link that one? The link above has expired already (which leads to another question - how to make a permalink to something on the HK Library website?)
