A look at the latest additions to Gwulo...


  • Memories of:
  • Readers are looking for any information about:
    • How old is this stone marker near Luk Keng:
      Stone Marker 朱藍山界
      Stone Marker 朱藍山界, by Paul Tsang


  • The 'explosion' reported at the West Point gasometer in 1934 wasn't actually an explosion.
  • Upgrade update: A slight change of plan - I've finished the core pages for Photos, Places, and People, and had originally planned to open up the new site for feedback when I got this far. I've decided it is better to get the rest of the pages (Organisations, Streets, etc.) working before I open up the new site, then I can concentrate on responding to feedback instead of trying to juggle that with finishing the other pages. I'm currently working on the 'Book / Document', and 'Page(s) from Book / Document', and then will work my way through the other page types until they are all done.
    At the same time I've put in an order to the hosting company to move us to a larger server, so it has enough space to host both the current and the upgraded websites at the same time. The Gwulo website will be offline for several hours during the middle of this week, while the hosting company makes the changes.




LizB has been busy documenting Kowloon's industrial sites. If you can add any photos, facts or memories to these places, please click through to their page and leave a comment there.
