Tram destination "VICTORIA"

Fairly recently there was a question as to when VICTORIA ceased to be used and CENTRAL DISTRICT came into common useage. This 1990s picture taken in the depot of a windblown tram destination roll shows VICTORIA still as a destination, although I don't recall seeing a tram using it in recent years.

Harbour Master's House /Pedder's Hill [1841-????]

Date Place completed: 
1841-01-01

was where William Pedder, the first Harbourmaster, had his office. It was above Wyndham Street. 
his book Hong Kong Cavalcade, John Luff wrote: "Pedder built his  office on the rocks above a track which has since become Wyndham Street, and for many years the site was known as Pedder's Hill. "The harbourmaster's boat was tied up at the end of a wharf which extended to the deep water. Pedder's Wharf became a definite locality, and, as the old records show, several firms used it as a mailing address."
