Hi David,

As for the aerial photo you asked, the only figure at the  frame was "7207".

But I'm not sure whether this figure means "July, 1972". This photo was provided by

Land Departrment in Hong Kong ( in 1980s). They had a lot of areal photos and maps of old time in Hong Kong as their reference, and I asked them to see the reference on "Conduit 41" area.

At the time, their staff was very kind, she  accepted to make the reproduction of the photos and

maps I requested, but as it needed time to prepare, these were sent to my house in Japan.

I guess the 7207 is some sort of internal reference number, because the site had already been re-developed by 1972.

Not to worry, I'll assume it was taken in the 1960s for now, and maybe other buildings can narrow down the date over time.

Regards, David
