In Carl T Smith's "Wanchai: In search of an Identity", he writes:

As one proceeds east from the junction of Wanchai Road with what is now Johnston Road, the first street is Bullock Lane. At the end of the lane on what is now Cross Lane the Eastern Slaughter House was opened in 1858. Later the Gas Works had a storage tank on the site.

Hi moddsey,

could you please add the tags "gas holder" and "gas works" so that this place appears in the list/map of gas works and gasometers.

Regards, Klaus

Done. Cheers!

Hi, the tags need also to be added to the place, otherwise it can't be be found here .


Gasometer and gas works were located on Inland Lot No. 1251. Can be seen on the 1905 map.

IL 1251 is also mentioned in the list from 1940.
