My mother's family lived on Salisbury Avenue in the late 1920s. She recalled the street was composed of nice two storey row houses with a front yard where they kept a private rickshaw.  There were Indian soliders in the barracks in the immediate neighbourhood.  I recently learnt that there was a Punjabi Mess at Cameron Rd which became the Park Hotel. Family later moved to Lock Rd and still later Chi Wo St.
