Peak Renumbering

This covers the period 1904 -1960. There was a further renumbering that took effect on 1st September 1960 to give the present peak numbering system but I have not found a complete record of the change online.

1960-1970's Guildford Road - Mansfield Road, The Peak

Hi Everyone, 

This website is great! I grew up in Hong Kong and have lived in Mansfield Road over the 1990s. Wondering are there any photos or photos anyone has taken of the Peak area Guildford road to Mansfield road during 1960s onwards? It is a very peaceful area and I have revisited it after moving to California. There is even a football team that plays in the park every now and then... my eldest son's childhood was that park took him there almost each day and was nice chatting to parents. Am interested in having a look at what it was during that era.

Aberdeen from The Peak

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1940

This photo was taken of Aberdeen Harbour from the premises of Francis Leslie Ball at 364 The Peak (now 28 Severn Road). The photo was probably taken before they left for Australia in 1940. I can definitely see the two Aberdeen Reservoirs located on the south side of Hong Kong. I am not sure what the long building is in the distance beyond the lower reservoir.
