Cornwall Avenue 1972

Cornwall Avenue, in the back is the junction of of Carnarvon Road & Bristol Avenue / Cornwall Avenue. Above San Miguel Beer a bit of Waltzing Matilda Inn is visible, and a sign to the Marquis Restaurant.

Think it's the opposite direction to this one:

Au Trou Normand (French Restaurant, First Location) [1964-????]

Date Place completed: 
c.1964-01-01 (Month, Day are approximate)

SCMP reported in 2003: Founded by a former French paratrooper, Bernard Vigneau, in 1964, the 60-seat restaurant was a slice of Europe in Tsim Sha Tsui. 

The restaurant was located at 6 Hankow Road (probably inside the Hanchung Mansion which opened 05/1962), at least until the 1980s.

It moved later to 4B-6H Carnarvon Road.

Jimmy's Kitchen Kowloon (1st location) [????-????]

There was a Jimmy's Kitchen in Kowloon in the 1930's already. It was located at (approx. 28) Hankow Road in the European Houses on Hankow Road (1920/30's) [c.1929-c.1962].  Possibly the restaurant was there during the existence of the houses.

Wasn't mentioned on their website.
