My mum lived first at 70, Lion Rock Road and later at 19, Prat Avenue. I don't know which of those addresses she's standing outside here.

The Lo Yuk-Tong family house, at 17-19 Kennedy Road, was first built in 1919, and demolished near 1970. It is one of the sites that was redeveloped to build current day Hopewell Centre.

The pictures show the front entrance on Kennedy Road. After walking in, you will find yourself at a small pagoda. On the left of the pagoda, stone steps lined with flower pots lead down 1-storey to the front door of the house. The front door was located on the third floor of the house.
