Photos that show this place



Ballamacleog is given as the name of the house - John Douglas Clague of Hutchison lived here.  I think I remember reading that executives of Jardine Matheson rented the house in the 1990s.  I found the following pictures:

The Telefax: Hong Kong facsimile directory (1987) lists 26 Middle Gap Rd, but I cannot see the name.  Can anyone try to read it at google books?

You can read a bit more about him (pre-bailout) on Andrew's excellent History of HK here:

(although I recommend you read the whole thing, it's very informative and entertaining)
