Block of four-story houses on Haiphong Road extending from Nathan to Hankow Roads (Lock Road didn't exist then), built on K.I.L. 3 and K.I.L. 401. Appears first on the 1904 map on, they were probably built around 1900.

When looking at photos taken after WW 2, the fourth story is missing on the houses near Nathan Road- war damage?

Demolished likely in 1959, the new houses on these lots are Hai Phong Mansion  and The Camphora, both opened in 1961.
