Hi there,

I could not recall anything about that long building as shown in the photo.  That was well before I was born.

That plot of lan seemed to have something to do with the Hong Kong Playground Association.  The Association was establish in 1933.  

Before the whole site (including the clinic) was rebuilt after MTR construction, there used to be a covered playground/stadium, run by HKPA.  Matches of Basket Ball, Volley Ball, Badminton and Table Tennis were staged there very frequently.  HKPA used to have an office block at the corner of O'Brien Road, which is also visible in the photo.  The Family Planning Association also had an office there, in the same building.

Thanks & Best Regards,
