A small extract

I was going through some of my map books of Hong Kong when I found some small passages (not much info) inside. Extract sentences below.

At that time the British Hong Kong Government didn't apply the metric system (Year 1977) yet and the MSs' were sprung up all over Castle Peak Road. It was anoymous who and when those were taken away.
