The tannery was located on K.I.L. 640 and the adjacent K.I.L. 1267, near the Ma Tau Kok Cattle Depot. The tannery is marked on the 1920 Kowloon map, but had probably already been in existence for some time by then. It can still be seen on a 1957 map of Kowloon (https://www.hkmaps.hk/viewer.html), but by 1960 it had been replaced by residential housing.
