In a comment to the Ap Lei Chau power station, David wrote: It looks as though we can follow the progress from 1 to 5 generating units by the number of chimneys in the photos.

Yes, that's true:

Note: The dates given refer to the year when the photos were taken, not when the chimneys were built.

Forward Dressing Station - on the slope above Tin Wan Estate [????- ]

Location of marker is approximate.  This building is clearly marked in the GeoInfo Map.  Most likely in current 1:10000 & 1:5000 maps too.  

Walked by this Forward Dressing Station on 12th February.  It would seem it might have been used by squatters after the war.  At that time and before the housing developments, the slopes are full of huts and terraces.  The terraces are much over grown but still visible if you know where to look.
