Hong Kong - The Peninsula

Original text:

My brother David and I stayed in the Peninsula Hotel during our week in Hong Kong. The hotel is in Kowloon, on the mainland side. Our room was on the side closest to the camera. It might have been on the fifth floor, closer to the front (left) than the back. We could see some of the harbor from our room.

Post Card of Tsim Sha Tsui near Carnarvon Road

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 

Earlier came across this on a website and saved this photo of Carnarvon Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, which I believe was taken around the 1930s.  An interesting angle of the district, and surprised with how quiet the district was when the photo was taken.  Have not done work to figure out which road is which yet.

#190 Nathan Road, Tsimshatsui [1937- ]

Date Place completed: 
c.1937-01-01 (Month, Day are approximate)

I really don't know if this fits.  But I am posting it anyway.  Despite the pillars, it is definitely NOT of the Guangzhou style ones.  

It's quite a big one and quite well preserved too, but I am unable to confirm it's completion date.  The upper floors had been one of the locally well known photo studios 'I Do' for a while.  However the floors had been vacant now.
