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.

Where was Royal Engineers HQ in HK 1955?

Good afternoon all.

Am on brief and unexpected visit to HK, staying above Sha Tin in the New Territories. Have just received long letter from my 86-year old mother recalling her life here with my father and my older sister between 1955 and 1958. Am trying to locate a couple of the places she mentions but there are info gaps in her story after 60 years...
