Thanks for that. I'll guess it was built in 1883, allowing a few months for the contract to be awarded then the work done the following year.

I live right above this bridge and recently learnt from Taxi drivers that this is called the "Birds bridge" (in Cantonese). What is the history behind this bridge? There is also a building across the road dated 1941 I think, does this building bare any significance besides being a beautiful antique?
