Kowloon Club / Kowloon Hotel (2nd location) [????-????] | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong

Kowloon Club / Kowloon Hotel (2nd location) [????-????]

Current condition: 
Demolished / No longer exists

A 1901 Map (UK National Archive ref: CO 700-Hong Kong and China22) shows Kowloon Hotel on Elgin Road (today's Haiphong Road), roughly where the junction of Hankow Road is today. The lot is shown as IL 410.

This entry in the Government Gazette shows it was previously called the Kowloon Club, but became the Kowloon Hotel in late 1893 / early 1894:

Special Sessions of Her Majesty's Justices of the Peace will be held in the Justices' Room, at the Magistracy, on Tuesday, the 19th day of December, A.D. 1893, at Eleven o'clock in the forenoon, for the purpose of considering an application from one L.M.Lobo for the transfer of the Publican's licence now held by him for the sale of intoxicating liquors in the premises known as the "Kowloon Hotel" situate in Robinson Road, Tsim-tsa-tsui, to the premises known as the "Kowloon Club" situated in Elgin Road, Inland Lots Numbers 409, 410 and 411, Tsim-tsa-tsui.

H. E. Woodhouse,

Police Magistrate.

Magistracy, Hong Kong, 8 December, 1893.

Moddsey has found these mentions:

From HKGRO Licensing Sessions, the address was given as

1908 30 Elgin Road

1910 29 Haiphong Road

I think the marker needs to be much closer to Kowloon Park. See the attached map:

No doubt that the building was further north than the marker. I was aiming for the centre of the "Inland Lots Numbers 409, 410 and 411, Tsim-tsa-tsui" description given above:
