Continuing my stroll up and down Broadwood Road via the 1918-19 Rate Book, I come to No. 12 [I.L. 2132] belonging to Lau Chu-Pak, located near No. 11 [I.L. 2133] owned by Sir Ellis Kadoorie and No. 13, originally owned jointly by C.E. Warren and J. Olson, but Warren’s name is deleted in the entries for both 1916-17 and 1918-9.  In both years Warren is given as the owner of No. 20, “The Towers”. Among his achievements, Lau Chu-Pak founded the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce of which he later became chairman.
