On the old one Glenshiel is visible behind the tracks, this likely sets the date to about 1915. On the 2008 one Epworth Lodge can be seen.

Protecting Hong Kong Names

Hi all,

For years(actually from childhood) I can't help but notice that there is a lot of confusion on the geographic divisions of neighbourhoods in Hong Kong. The more research I did, the more I have found there has been a vast amount of manipulation from the Establishment (real estate developers, the government, the MTRC, etc.) on our perception of this space that we live in. It is chaotic and full of contradictions at the moment, and actions should taken to protect our heritage.
