Time Ball

I'm tracking down as much as I can about the period during which Hong Kong had a time ball. The mechanized wonders existed from 1.1.1885 until the time ball service was discontinued on 30.6.1933. I have images (though would welcome more) for it at pretty regular intervals from its first installation at the old Water Police Station in Tsim Sha Tsui until its demise when it was on Signal/Blackhead's Hill.

Victoria-Harbour - map of 1866

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1866

Here goes my second attempt at adding maps for David's new map project. The source this time is the 1867 edition of the Chronicle & Directory of China. Japan & Corea etc.,etc. Note that there are some minor imperfections in the street alignments in the area adjacent to Taiping Shan, Union Chapel & Hollywood Road ( marked as "37" & "D" respectively in the Index) . These errors (arising from page joints or paper folds) were present in the original microfilm reader printouts from which I have stitched this map together.
