That four storey house can be seen on many photos and postcards. Was that the Wan Chai Police building Nr.2 ? When was it demolished ?

Tahnk you very much for all your input

Thank you Klaus for your comment, I am still not sure what building the house was, on the left side with the triangle rooftop. That our storey building on the left looks like the former police building. Is that correct ? Just like to find out what building it was. Thank you very much for your reply.

Hi maidestone, this is a misunderstanding. The photo was taken at the junction of Tin Lock Lane and Hennessy Roads (see here). The building with the triangle roof stood on Hennessy Road between Canal and Bowrington Roads. 

It is neither No.1 Police Station (which stood on Leighton Hill Road) nor No. 2 Police Station (which was at Johnston Road).
