Hi there,

The completion & demolition dates stated are for the version of the city after WWII.  For the original one I guess we have to create another marker for it as it was built back in 1874.  The stones of the wall was most likely being used by the Japanese during the occupation to extend Kai Tai Airport.

Best Regards,
