Surviving gas lamp posts
Submitted by C on Wed, 2009-10-07 07:10
Besides the well-known gas lamps (still in operation) on Duddell Street, some lamp posts survive into the new millennium. I know of the following ones: (1) Junction of Rutter Street and Fuk On Lane (or Wa Ning Lane), Tai Ping Shan. See: http://gwulo.com/node/4566 (2) Junction of Yu Po Lane East and Eastern Street, Sai Ying Pun. Not sure if this one survived the construction of new buildings. There are other possible gas lamp posts mentioned in various internet forums. Can someone confirm if these are truly remnants of gas lamps? (a) Behind the Hung Shing Temple on Queen's Road East, Wan Chai; (b) Junction of Gascoigne Road and Chi Wo Street, Yau Ma Tei (not likely); (c) Tramway Path, Mid-levels (not likely).
