That's interesting. I wonder if the 'New' in 'New Street' (top-right corner of garveyard area on new map) dates back to this time?

I've seen the old maps at the flyover next to Western Market of the area and the current Po Yan Street and it was marked Cemetary Road and where the present day New Street exist, was literally a boundary between the cemetary and the buildings on Gap Road (Hollywood Road). If I get a chance to go back to the map, I will take some pictures.
