May Road (crossing point of Peak Tram) [????- ]

May Road is described by Booth as the steepest part of the track, and uphill from here was a "small signal box in which a man changed the points at the passing place".

Shanghai Street [????- ]

Shanghai Street - now famous for its array of home-improvement/DIY shops as well as these Shophouses.

Shantung Street Kwun Yam Temple [????- ]

I am pretty sure this temple still exists and is sandwiched between two high-rise buildings.

Lugard Waterfall [????- ]

Booth mentions this waterfall as part of his walk around the peak - "I would always set off clockwise, walking beneath overhanging trees alive with butterflies and the birds that ate them., passing a waterfall..."

I just found out today that it has a name, Lugard Waterfall.
