Yau Ma Tei Pumping Station - Still there...!

Image (external): 

You can clearly see the remaining structure of the pumping station, once the engineers office and now associated with the nearby Cantonese opera held at Yau Ma Tei theatre. 

Funny to think they were going to tear it down because no one knew what the original purpose of the building was... 

There's no date given but I'd guess c.1900.

I wonder if the AMO has even seen this photo - from UK national archives...
