ML 431 [1930- ]

Date Place completed: 
c.1930-01-01 (Month, Day are approximate)

This land was reclaimed at the same time as the adjacent ML 430.

Outline is approximate. No parts of ML431 show up in the results of a search at https://www.hkmapservice.gov.hk/OneStopSystem/map-search#, as the lot has been renumbered.

This land was reclaimed at the same time as the adjacent ML 431.

1961 Admiralty view

This photo from end of 1960/early 1961 shows the construction of Harcourt Road. The reclamation of a part of the Boal Pool has been finished, the same applies to Gloucester Road behind the Wanchai Police Headquarters. The new wall around the area that the Admiralty will still use has been built already.
