Here is a shot from the 50's though (courtesy of my deceased father-in-law, Gut Hui): TigerBalmGardensHK01

completed around 1935, sold in 1999 and demolished soon after:  A Century of Hong Kong Island Roads and Streets by Cheng Po Hung. 
the mansion is still there and I guess should be a separate place 

The wall murals represented Daoist visions of Heavens & Hells.

It was demolished in 2002, not 1999. You can still see the pagoda intact if you go to google earth and travel back to 2002.

Thanks Brandon, I've updated the demolition date from 1999 to 2002.
