Wanchai Govt School, Queen's Road East [1872-1959]
I find the old Hong Kong photos in Gwulo amazing. I am looking for old photo(s) showing the old Wanchai School building (which was demolished in 1959) located at 269 Queen's Road East. The old building was a single storey, built of red bricks and black pitched tiled roof. It was surrounded by short white walls along QRE and Kennedy Street. Outside the main iron gate, there was a big beautiful bayan tree.
The old Wanchai School was situated right opposite the former Royal Navy Hospital (later became Ruttonjee Sanitorium). I hope someone from the Royal Navy Hospital might have captured photos of this school from top of the hospital hill. The school was also adjacent to the English Methodist Church at the corner of Kenndy Road.
I'll be grateful for any further information supplied by others. Thank you
