Hung Hom Police Station (2nd generation) [c.1950-1979]

Submitted by Klaus on Fri, 01/07/2022 - 22:25

Second generation Hung Hom Police Station was located at the junction Chatham Road North and Hok Yuen Street. It can be located on the 1956 Kowloon map on Gwulo.

Simtang pointed out that works for the police station building commenced in 1949, and the station was opened in 1950. The station was demolished when Chatham Road was widened; it is still there on an aerial photo from December 1977, and gone on one from September 1979.

Former Hung Hom Ferry Pier for Hung Hom / Central service [1965-c.1971]

The present day foot bridge stands more or less along the old sea front.  We could use the bridge as a reference for the three piers.

According to a Wiki entry the Central/Hung Home service was formerly run by HYF in 1967.  But service was suspended owing to the riots and did not resume.  Star Ferry took over later.  I have seen an old photo showing a HYF ferry tied to this pier somewhere at Uwants.

Marker Stone near 1-3 Ma Tau Wai Road, at the corner of an alley [????- ]

Hi there,

I spotted this last night.  Unfortunately the stone had already been weathered down.  I was unable to read the engraving.  It could be a K.I.L. or a H.H.I.L.  I will return for a second visit in daylight later.

The same alley is the one with pillars on both ends that  have mentioned before.  If you check up the street map of the location, you should be able to see the same alley continues on the other side of Ma Tau Wai Road straight to Gilles Avenue South and beyond.

Best Regards,

T

Hi there,

After bumping into the K.I.L. Markers on Ma Tau Wai Road I decided to take a look in the neighbourhood for houses being built more or less in the same period and indeed, I found another set of H.H.I.L Markers on the first step of another staircase in Wuhu Street.

Hi there,

In this part of Ma Tau Wai Road there are still a roll of older houses around.  Here in #58-68 of Ma Tau Wai Road there are three sets of K.I.L. Marker Stone being set on the first step of the stair cases.  Some of them are quite weathered down and the lot number are not showing.
