I have been conducting some research on the early water supply of Victoria City, and came across descriptions about the construction of 4 wells by the British government, as well as many more others by locals and foreign residents (For e.g. research publication by Dr. Pui-yin Ho from CUHK). Anyone knows where I could find historical images of such wells? Are there any remnants left at present?
I have also come across some old channelized streams when I was walking around the Mid-levels. These stream channels have edges and ornamental features built by stone, for e.g. Robinson Road / Castle Road / around HKU. I wonder when stream channels in the Mid-levels started to be built, and whether they are solely for stormwater drainage, or whether they have played other roles in the early history of Hong Kong.
