Hong Kong Hotel Garage / Japanese Naval Garage [1925-????]
Position is approximate.
Yesterday I read this:
The Japanese Naval Garage, where we were employed as armed guards, had once been the Gloucester Hotel Garage. This was situated about 100 yards up Wong Nei Chung Road, generally called Gap Road. This road then continued winding over the hills past several cemeteries of different religions. The upper main entrance of the garage was on the road and the lower entrance to the workshop was next to the Muslim Cemetery.
It is from a book "Snippets from my life: Hong Kong and Beyond", by Sardar Ahmed Bhatti. He grew up in Hong Kong. The passage above describes events in 1944. I'm not sure if what he remembers as Gloucester Hotel Garage was a separate garage, or was the same as the Hong Kong Hotel Garage. I guess they're the same, but has anyone heard of a separate Gloucester Hotel Garage?
I think he's muddling up Gap Road too. That was the old name for the last stretch of Queen's Road from Kennedy Road down to Morrison Hill Road.
Still, an interesting read, as there's very little written about Indian families' experience of Hong Kong.
