1948

Hi David, David W and Moddsey -

I've followed David's suggestions and reloaded this photo "still" from the 8mm film (not using my TV monitor!).

This #1 photo is a much clearer image.I have also loaded an image #2 that is immediately to the right of the Pagoda so it can be see clearer. - (see next image).

Terrain to the right of Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda - Photo #2.JPG

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1948

This is photo #2 in a consecutive series taken from the same 8mm film that shows what we believe is the Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda in 1948. This photo shows the immediate terrain to the right of the Pagoda - with the buildings in better detail.

Regards,

British stone marker stating the 114'30" E boundary at sea dated 1902 [1902-2007]

Date Place completed: 
1902-01-01
Date Place demolished: 
2007-12-31

The marker is approximate.  However for the accuracy of the then Royal Navy Engineers/Survayers I am pretty sure the stone used to sit exactly on the 114'30" E longitude.

Thanks for JW for this piece of Old News.  Back in 2007 archeologists in Shenzhen had discover this stone marker at the tip of the Xichong (西沖)。 It was the boundary marker setup by the British for the seaward boundary concerning the taking (or lease, depends on how you look at it) of the New Territories.

Beacon - Tai Po Tau 大步頭墩台 (according to 新安縣誌), early Qing. [????- ]

Location is just a speculation.  It is based upon a present day village called Ying Pun Ha (營盤下)。Ying Pun (營盤) means a military camp and Ha (下) means under/below.  The name of the village literally means "the village below the military camp' in English.  If the beacon was there it would be somewhere along the ridge.
