Hi there,

According to this Kowloon City District Board research document the walled city wasn't built until late Qing in May 1847.  The document was written in Chinese by a group of knowledgeable scholars.  Tim Ko was among them.  The reference was on page eight.

Best Regards,


Thanks T, I've set the completion date as 1847, and made a guess of the demolition date as 1943, ie during the Japanese occupation.
