Yellow line - Wanchai Road

Orange line A - Heard Street

Orange line B - Cross Lane

It can be seen that the then Government Trade School / HK Technical College building (square roof) was built against the toe of Morrison Hill, which is already half gone.

 

Any photo about the round structure below 'B' ? It looks like a gasometer for supplying coal gas

If my memory serves me right, the red brick school in Wan Chai was Victoria Technical School - a vocational technical secondary school on which became the present Vocational Training College, as opposed to Hong Kong Technical College in Hung Hom on which HK Polytech U was developed.  Lawrence
