Date Place completed: 
c.1909-11-30 (Year is approximate)
Date Place demolished: 
c.1949-11-30 (Month is approximate)

The Old Wong Nai Chung Gap police station no longer stands today, it was demolished post WW2 to make way for a private residence, which is now one of Stanley Ho's houses.

This Police Station was a pivotal structure that controlled Wong Nai Chung gap, and thus Hong Kong Island. It was situated on the 4-way crossroads that led to all 4 quarters of the Island. This effectively was the commanding structure of the battle of Wong Nai Chung gap; whoever held it, held the gap.
