Photo cropped from Aerial of Sai Ying Pun 1950s, the map from 1905 in on Gwulo.

Along Connaught Road (after 1900s reclamation), godowns were built in Sai Ying Pun and Shek Tong Tsui (the border between the two districts is a bit east of the "o" in Connaught on the map). 

Shows many unidentified godowns. On the left, there is China Provident Loan & Mortgage Co. Cold Store, already a second generation building. A few new houses were built to the west, but many of the old godowns are still there in the  1950s. In the center are the Godowns on Marine Lots 198, 204 and 205
