Stone Nullah Lane [c.1850- ]

Submitted by Klaus on Sat, 03/27/2021 - 19:59

Named after: the water channel that ran through it.

A creek starting just below (todays) Kennedy Road ran down the hill and drained into Victoria Harbour where (todays) Wanchai Road runs. Possibly as early as the late 1840s, when Queen's Road was built, the creek was diverted and ran covered under the street. 


  • 1850: Street first laid out, from Queen's Road to (todays) Cross Street
  • 1858 Wanchai Market was built on top of the nullah
  • 1866(ca.): Street extended to (todays) Johnston Road (after reclamation)         
  • 1866(ca.): Street extended to (todays) Lung On Street               

            The stone nullah ran through the middle of the street between Lung On and Queen's Road (see 1866 map on Gwulo).

  • 1880s??: Street named Tsing Kai Lane (name appears on the 1889 map on
  • 1901??: Street renamed Stone Nullah Lane
  • 1959: Nullah covered
  • 2000(ca.): Street partly removed after area re-developed (The Zenit)
