Pedderstreet and Jardines
I was always wondering who occupied that space on the right corner of Pedder Street and Queens Road Central (looking down Pedder Street from Queens Road Central towards the waterfront) before the first Hong Kong Hotel was built on that corner of Pedder Street and Queens Road Central. Moreover when did the Hong Kong Hotel moved to this corner. I know that further down, on the same side on Pedder Street there was a building (right on the Waterfront) occupied by the firm Dent and Co. and later taken over by the Hong Kong-Shanghai Hotel Co. who built an extension to the existing older hotel.
Moreover I know that Jardine moved to the central office in 1864 from east point. Who did occupied that particular building, before jardine moved in, in 1864 and when was that particular building been errected.
Thank you very much for all your kind help
Best regards, Daniel
