  • 1945: The premises were 'reconstructed and reconditioned' by the RAF for use of their NCOs and other ranks.
  • 1947: The site was returned to civilian use, and re-opened as The Ritz

Details in the comments below.

I only found one result for "ritz garden" in the newspapers, reporting that manager Li Choi-fat was in court (The China Mail, 1948-12-16, pg 3).
