Former Stanley Police Station [1859- ]

Date Place completed:

Police Station #3, Wanchai [1847-c.1905]

Date Place completed: 
Date Place demolished: 
c.1905-12-31 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)

Demolition date is a guess, taken from:

No. 3 Police Station, situated in Queen's Road East, was built in 1847. It was vacated after 1905, and demolished subsequently. The former Wan Chai Post Office was built in its place.


Mong Kok Police Station (1st location) [1923-????]

Date Place completed: 

The Mong Kok Police Station is currently at the "142, Prince Edward Road West" site (see http://gwulo.com/node/14850). I'm not sure if it moved straight there when this site was re-developed, or if it has been at any other sites in between.

1900 PWD Annual Report

A new Police Station was built on a site selected above the Cattle Depot on the road leading to Pokfulam and completed on 1 October 1900.

The previous Police Station in Kennedy Town (see http://gwulo.com/node/17695) had been converted for use as a hospital.

Kennedy Town Police Station / Infectious Diseases Hospital, Victoria Road [????- ]

The position is approximate. It is marked on a 1924 map, but I'm not sure who ran it or what type of illnesses it treated. It may have been connected with the Tung Wah Plague Hospital, which was on the adjacent plot of land.

No. 7 Police Station (2nd generation) [1902-????]

Date Place completed: 

Completion date from point 44 in the PWD Annual report for 1902. The report also notes that the new building was built on the site of the earlier No 7. Police Station.

Previous place(s) at this location: 

Western Police Station [????- ]

There are several different buildings in the compound. Does anyone know the dates they were completed?
