H is Dents Main building - became Oriental Hotel in 1864/65?

In between the two buildings is an empty space - another building may have been built here by the time the site was sold in 1866- Possibly Keying? House - then bought by the Hong Kong hotel in 1866. Or were Keying/Marine House the same building?

K The original Marine House, bought by Hong Kong Hotel in 1866

L is Lindsay & Co on Lot 2 - became the mercantile bank of India sometime after 1865 (when Lindsay and Co when bankrupt) There may have been a new building for the Bank
