This image is related to the  recent 1950s aerial view of Kowloon north.

In that image are three prominent white tower blocks above Boundary Street on the right. These belonged to HSBC and were demolished along with the adjacent hillsides for the new runway at Kai Tak. HSBC were given alternative land which may have been at Beacon Hill as I seem to recall Luso Apartments in Warwick Road was an HSBC staff complex in the 1960-70s. The flattened hills became Kowloon Tsai Park and Lok Fu Park
