Taken at the HKU sports ground at the annual Past v. Present cricket match early in 1954.  It was a multi-use ground and soccer and hockey were also played on it, so the cricket was always played on a pitch covered with matting to try and disguise the lumps and bumps.

I've used the date they built a permanent building, according to the club's website. Apparently the building was bombed during the war and demolished by the Japanese, who used the grounds to shape the granite blocks for the war memorial near mt Cameron.
