Mysterious pile of granite blocks & columns near Baguio Villas [????- ]
This morning Paul Harrison took me along to see what he's called the 'Lego building': granite blocks and columns stacked up on a patch of flat ground below lower Baguio Villas.
Does anyone know the story behind them?
Here's the patch of flat land below lower Baguio Villas. There's a fence running across the ground, and beyond the fence you can see the blocks in the distance, over to the left:
Here's a closer look:
Paul noted that the blocks must have been here a long time, based on the size of the trees on the right.
Outside the fence are more blocks:
No round columns in this collection, they look like they were originally square pillars:
One block is appx 30-in / 75-cm across:
Where they originally part of the Dairy Farm land in this area? They seem too ornate for cows!
Or part of an old building up on Pok Fu Lam Road, or even Central, that was demolished and moved here?
Was the original plan to use them for an ornate, old-fashioned entrance to Baguio Villas?
Those are just wild guesses - other wild guesses welcome!
