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. <Read more ...>
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. <Read more ...>
Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos):
These sedan chairs appear to be exactly the same type shown in David's picture. I hope the passengers came up The Peak in the tram rather than being carried up from town. They are an Air France crew visiting after a flight from Hanoi.
