Date picture taken


Changed date from 1953 to 1956. In 1953, the eastern section of Alexandra House wasn't built, but this photo shows it already completed.

1956 is a guess - any clues for a more accurate date welcome.

The building, Kwok Man House, to the east of the Bank of East Asia when viewed in the early 1950s as seen: http://gwulo.com/node/7572 and http://gwulo.com/node/3038 , had verandahs facing Des Voeux Road Central whereas in the flickr photo, the building's facade appears to have been changed with the verandahs enclosed and columns being more prominent.
