#12-20 On Lan Street, Central [????-2011]

Date Place demolished: 
2011-01-01

You might not believe it, but here's an adjacent block of five (5) houses right in the Heart of Central.

Corner of Wing Kut & Des Voeux Central [????- ]

This one was mentioned by fellow netter philk earlier.  The height of this block is one floor extra than most of the ones that we have been marking up here.  I had had a glimsp of the stair case and it also appeared to be made of wood.  I cannot verify the building date of this by it's looks as it had been modernized in the past decades.

 

#72 Des Voeux Road Central, Tak Wing Pawn Shop - Since 1940 [1940- ]

Date Place completed: 
1940-12-31

#99F Wellington Street, Central - Fresco Cafe Bakery [????- ]

This one has no pillars.

 

#28-32 Graham Street, Central [????- ]

I believe these three are within the rebuilt area. I don't know what their fate would be. They had not been boarded up yet, however.

 

#62 Hollywood Road, Central [????- ]

The one on the right hand side (the restaurant) is #62

 

#60 Hollywood Road, Central [1925- ]

Date Place completed: 
1925-01-01

 The one on the left is #60.

Wing Wo Ho Grocery Store, Graham Street Wet Market [1930- ]

Date Place completed: 
1930-01-01

The location marked up there is just one of the older houses, the Wing Wo Ho Gorcery store. The wet market take up nearly the middle part of Graham Street between Wellington & Gage, and extended to Gage Street itself. This area would soon be re-developed. Some elements like the exterior wall of some older building might be preserved.
