H.H.I.L. 293 & 296 Marker Stone @ 44 Wuhu Street, Hung Hom [????- ]

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.

Hi there,

I had been walking around in Hung Hom last night after work.  Surprise, I found there are quite a lot of these marker stone around.  I saw three pieces of this H.H.I.L. 444 stone around the corners of the Poo Ai Primary School, a school that was already closed down last year.
