Hi there,

I believe the Post Office should be somewhere inside the passenger terminal.  Thus the marker should be moved closer towards present day Sung Wong Toi MTR station.


Prior to the closure of Kai Tak Airport in 1998, the Airport Post Office was located in the Departure Hall of the Passenger Terminal Building after the building's completion in 1962. Between 1962 and 1998, the Post Office had changed locations several times and was sited in different offices within the Departure Hall.

Noting the three letters that have been recently added to Gwulo and postmarked "Kai Tak 1961", the Airport Post Office at the time would have likely been in the Departure Hall of the Temporary Terminal Building (1959-1962).
