Only just noticed one of the IFC towers being built on the left of this photo. I don't even remember seeing either IFC tower until 2007!

Dorothy Elizabeth Darkin née Davies (born sometime between April and June 1931) was married to a Rick Darkin (I think maybe Richard Eric son of Norman Darkin?) who was a Superintendent in the RHKP in Mongkok, Kowloon at the time of her death. We believe she had left the UK for New Zealand as a nurse in the late 1950s before ending up in HK. She had two sons (Angus and Rodney) who would have been born in the 1960s. The last known address was in Broadcast Drive, Kowloon.

David's excellent new mapping feature has spurred me into finishing a minor project which has lain in my bottom drawer unfinished for the best part of ten years.
