Panorama from above Conduit Road

Fri, 08/19/2016 - 23:12

It was taken from above Conduit Road, roughly where Cliff View Mansions is today

My guess for photographer is either John Thomson or Lai Afong. 

I believe the source is the UK national Archives

Please comment with any corrections for the below buildings. 

View from TST at the same time is here:
