No. 5 Boundary Stone (Replica)

This boundary stone is exhibited at the Hong Kong Museum of History in Tsim Sha Tsui. 

Obviously, it's a replica - and not an exact one!

It bears the date 1899; this is ok with the year of delimitation of the boundary, but the original shows the date 1898 - that's the year of the Second Peking Convention.

Likely a postcard from the second half of the 1970s. Holt's Wharf was already demolished to make way for the New World Centre.

Tsim Sha Tsui 1954 (2)

The photo shows buildings on Nathan Road (left) and Haiphong Road (right), possibly taken from the HK Telephone Building. It gives a similar view like Tsim Sha Tsui 1954, but extends more to the north-west.

Tsim Sha Tsui 1954

View along Nathan Road in southerly direction possibly taken from the HK Telephone Building. The largest building is the Peninsula Hotel, and we can see a couple of roads going west (right): Salisbury and Middle Roads near the hotel, then Peking Road, and finally (in the foreground) a short road that leads to Lock Road which didn't have a junction with Peking Road at this time.

Many of the houses visible were built around 1930, and they will be demolished shortly after this photo was taken.
