10 & 11, The Peak [????-1941]
The 1924 Map shows 10 & 11 The Peak were next to 'Haystack' on RBL 166.
I found a letter at the HKPRO (ref: HKRS156-1-388) from the HSBC to the Reparations Claims Registration Office, dated 25 Sep 1946:
[...] The Claim relates to a block of flats, No 10 and 11 The Peak, which were demolished by the British Forces in the course of the Japanese Attack on the Colony.
We desire to clear the site of the debris and have received a tender for the work which, if commenced by October 1 next can be carried out at a cost which owing to similar work being performed in the neighbourhood, can be done at a considerably lower cost than would otherwise be the case. [...]
I think the ruins of the building are visible in the bottom-right corner of this photo, dated 1945:
Does anyone know when these flats were built, who owned them (HSBC ?), and why the British Forces needed to demolish them?
