Chatham Road is suggested as the location on Flickr. Confirmation is made on the Facebook page of Hong Kong Heritages group that the building on the left is the St. Joseph's College Branch School in Kowloon.

Emboldened by Klaus's introduction of the theme of public toilets in Hong Kong, may I take the liberty of uploading this advertisement for a hundred year old design of British lavatory (unnamed here) on sale from the company of my grandfather, C.E. Warren & Co. Ltd? It is a part of Hong Kong's history. The ad was published in the SCMP of 20 March 1920 and is the only one that I have found that features the item in question by itself. It seems to me that the design of flushing toilets has not progressed much in a hundred years.

Jinricksha stands in Kowloon 1920

From the Hongkong Government Gazette April 30, 1920.

The link leads to the new TRAFFIC REGULATIONS. 

At the end, stands for rickshas and chairs for Hong Kong Island and stands for rickshas in Kowloon are listed.

Only rickshaws stands are compiled in Kowloon, likely because they were faster compared to sedan chairs and Kowloon was quite flat compared to the island.

The map shows the "Railway from KCR terminus to Kowloon Wharves [c.1934-c.1956]". Looks as if the tracks were in use earlier than 1934.
