Soldiers on Connaught Road (but exactly where and when?)

Not sure if this photo already exists here, so allow me to continue ...

Connaught Road and Soldiers Marching c.1930

Caption from photo source: “這是1927年省港大罷工後派來香港的軍人,地點是干諾道西夾威利麻街, 遠處是東邊街口, 樓柱可見「香港仔街坊汽車停車 .. 」, 前往香港仔的巴士由此處開出.”

[Translation: 1927 (photo) following Hong Kong’s general strike* (showing) “English” soldiers sent here (in response). The location is on Connaught Road West at Wilmer Street. The distant street corner (background) is Eastern. Shophouse column says bus to/from Aberdeen is at this spot.**”]
