Mount Austin Mansions [????-????] | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong

Mount Austin Mansions [????-????]

Current condition: 
Demolished / No longer exists

Martin Booth's residence up on the Peak (his family was in Block A).

Today's google map shows the area is now known as 'The Mount Austin', and consists of several house, blocks of flats, and a clubhouse. If you want to relive Booth's time on the Peak, I see a 1200 sq. ft. flat in the development is available to rent for $55K a month.

It must be a new development, as my 1999 street map still shows the four blocks A-D of Mount Austin Mansions.

I used to live here in 'E' block in1970 and 1974 to 1976. I loved living here. It was married quarters then. In1970 I went to school at St George's. The Military School in Kowloon. I used to catch the Peak Tram, mini bus, Star Ferry and coach to school snd reverse home. Great memories of a wonderful life in HK.
