Old houses on Peking Road (Inland lot 416, see 1896 Kowloon map), probably numbers 1 to 9. They are just north of the Marine Police Station and last shown on the 1956 Kowloon map. Today the Peking Road Sitting Out Area, Kowloon Park Drive, and 1, Peking Road are there. The buildings were probably built around 1900*, and demolished around 1972, possibly standing till 1974. 

*update: 1914 (see comment below).

"The Bluff" on Gough Hill Road The Peak RBL 25 - Circa 1971

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 

I believe in 1971 when I took this photo that "The Bluff" (RBL 25) was The West German Consulate. It was just up Gough Hill Rd from Lysholt, The Chief Justice's House, and Clavadel where my family lived from 1970 through 1973.

It is now "under" the 28 Gough Hill Road development, completed in 2004, which is described as a "Prestigious development located on the Peak with 6 detached house units" by Carrot Home who were responsible for the Home Automation at that development.
