Restored & Colourized Hong Kong Photos

I am a professional photo restorer and colourizer who works, for the most part, on antique sports images. But I have a great love of old Hong Kong images as well and have done a number of them. 

Peak Tram lower terminus (1st generation) [c.1888-c.1934]

Date Place completed: 
c.1888-01-01 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)
Date Place demolished: 
c.1934-12-31 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)

The first buildings here were single-storey, with two pitched roofs. One was where the tram pulled in, and the other looks to be for the ticket office and waiting room.

Cropped and enhanced from https://gwulo.com/atom/28469

Houses at Barker Road and Plantation Road are visible. I'm quite sure to see Richmond House and 455 The Peak, R.B.L. 150. Behind Richmond House is Altadena, but hardly visible. Downhill from Richmond house is Martinhoe, uphill could be Hazeley (nearby is today's Severn Villa).

I'm not sure with the other houses uphill.
