Taken from the tram just after leaving Ship Street Stop. Heading west.

This is how the Deep Cutting on King’s Road in Quarry Bay Village looks today.

Tram 139 covered centenary livery of the Wharf (former operator of HK Tramways), was one of the 15 trams rebuilt using original underframes and first appeared with roof resistor boxes in 1986, and they were eventually replaced by new bodies by end-1991, i.e. 1987 series. 

Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

The left tram looks to me like a mobile workshop car.

Cropped from Tramway to sugar factory Hong Kong.

The white house on the right looks pretty much like the Metropodle Hotel with the sign on the roof (unfortunately, can't read anything). Left of the hotel, two chimneys are visible. These can't belong to Taikoo Sugar - if so, they should be right of the hotel. Probably they belong to quarries located north of Taikoo Sugar.

On hkmaps.hk, the 1903.1 map shows water depths, pretty shallow like on the photo.

Street Car in Regina, SK (1911)

Greetings.  After looking at your recent photos dated 1905 of Hong Kong's First Class and Third Class trams, I found this 1911 photo of a  streetcar used in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.  It must be of the same generation as the two in Hong Kong, given the similarity in their appearance and chassis.  This one, or at least the heavy machinery part, likely came from the same factory in Britain.

Tramway to sugar factory Hong Kong

Should be King's Road near Quarry Bay. The tram was single-tracked in these early days.
