Photos that show this Place


The southern corner of this building was curved, so it stands out from the line of other buildings along Nathan Road at this time. It also had a small tower above that corner of the building.

Looking at the photo of Nathan Road below, the junction at the right foreground is with Mody Road. Further in the distance the next junction is with Carnarvon Road, beyond the gas lamp in the centre of the road. Then further away again the curved corner of this building is seen at the junction with Humphreys Ave.
