Can you please help me to identify that picture. Was the building in the back the Union Building ? And how about the construction site infront of that building ? What year could that have been ?

Thanks  so much !!

Date picture taken


This is indeed Union Building at the junction of DesVoeux Road and Pedder Street. The construction site is the new General Post Office that opened 1911. This is also indicated by the inscription "New Post Office". The date should be 1905 to 1906.

Probably taken after the great typhoon of 1906. An electricity pole on the right in danger of collapse.
