This building was the home of the General Manager of British General Electric Corporation (BGEC) since the 1950’s and probably before that. My father was GM until 1963 and then a couple of others took over before the house was sold to a Chinese businessman - I assume it was he who sold it to the developer who subsequently tore it down.  It was still there in the early 1990’s and each time I return to HK I go up there on a little memory lane trip!
