Viewing Wanchai District from Bowen Road 1895

Tue, 09/23/2014 - 00:36

This photo (dated in 1895) was loaded from Public Library gallery which shows the old Wanchai School, but in small image.   This photo was taken at a spot above the dam which formed part of Bowen Road.   It clearly shows the Seamen's Hospital at the top of hospital hill.  To its south was the old Wanchai School (at the right side of the photo).  For those who are familiar with Wanchai District, Wanchai Road and Stone Nullah Street can be identified easily in the photo.    The shoreline was Praya East, which was later renamed Johnston Road to the west, and Hennessy Road to the east.
