Construction of Roads in Hong Kong in the early 20th century

Let’s start with this photo from likely late 1915, which has been discussed on Gwulo lately. Besides the view of the just finished KCR Terminus building, it reveals a lot about road construction techniques in Hong Kong at the beginning of the 20th century.

1915 Kowloon -Canton Railway, Kowloon Terminus, Tsim Sha Tsui = 尖沙咀火車站

Originally attributed to 1914, but the building is finished and the date is more likely end of 1915. Date adjusted.

Railway connection to the Kowloon Wharves under construction. Likely these track opened at the same time when the terminus opened.

The pillars of the Kowloon Canton Railway Terminus in the Urban Council Centenary Garden

Kowloon Canton Railway Terminus was opened in 1916 while the clock tower was completed in 1915. Owing to lacking of space for expansion, the terminus was moved to Hung Hom in 1974. The station building was demolished in 1978 except the clock tower which was conserved under the effort of the Heritage Society. Six pillars of the station building were moved to the Urban Council Centenary Garden in Tsim Sha Tsui East.
