The Ice House Company, whose shop stood on Queen's Road Central, at the junction with Battery Path and Ice House Street, did not manufacture ice. The ice was harvested from iceburgs by The American Company and shipped to Hong Kong (source: Hong Kong - A Rare Photographic Record of the 1860s by Arthur Hacker).

Two old Caucasian twin sisters on Battery Path

I used to live on Robinson Road until 2012. Every morning I took the bus to the Central, got off at St. John's Cathedral and walked through Battery Path to my office. I used to see two old Caucasian twin sisters there either walking or sitting on the bench reading. They carried quite a bit of belongings in plastic bags with them. They were very quiet and, most of the time, I saw only one but not both together. I am not sure if they were homeless. Does anyone know of them and whether they are still around?
