A benzene/lubricating godown with approx 7 storage tanks, located on K.M.L. 32, Tai Kok Tsui (see 1906, 1916 & 1927 Public Works Reports; also 1920 Kowloon map)

The 1894 Public Works Report refers to "a large tank installation for the storage of 6,000 tons of kerosene oil in bulk at Tai-kok-tsui and [...] it is already proposed to make a considerable addition to the storage capacity of the depot", but it is not clear whether was the same facility.
