Kowloon Wharves, 1933 visit S.S. Lurline

Dear reader,

Please enjoy this excellent 1930s Kowloon photo. It was taken by tmc1233's grandfather, sailing the Pacific: "In 1933, my grandfather worked on the legendary S.S. Lurline as she took her maiden voyage of Hawaii, the South Pacific, New Zealand, Australia, and the Orient. These are his photos, as well as his captions. " With his permission, I place this photo on Gwulo.

Can you please give comments on what can be seen in this photo?

Kind regards,

Pieter

On Youtube I found a most interesting video. It's title is "The Cunard Line presents Hong Kong" and was made for the trip around the world of Cunard's cruise ship "Franconia". It is not eactly dated (1930's), so I set the date to 1935.

I copied a film still which shows the Peak Tram and the (first generation) Richmond House. 

 

Does anyone recognize this 1930s building?

I'm wondering if anyone knows this building. My family lived in Hong Kong then moved to Shanghai, but I've been looking in old docs and photos and have ruled out Shanghai because of the hills.The car looks like 30s but I can't see any definite IDs. Someone out there might recognize the building?
