Ordinance Office / Millitary Store [????-????] | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong

Ordinance Office / Millitary Store [????-????]

Current condition: 
Demolished / No longer exists

This was a long building along the south side of today's Queensway, in front of where the JW Marriott is today.

An 1856 map shows a building on the site labeled "Ordinance Office":

On an 1880 map it is labeled "Military Store":

I'm not sure if it is the same building from 1856-1981, or if it was re-developed during that time.
