Mid-1930s TST Signal hill

Very clear photo that shows details of houses along Chatham Road.

The house right of Signal Hill is the De Jongh Family Residence (2 buildings), followed by Lyton House which is hardly visible behind the new house at 17&19 Chatham Road. This building is much closer to Chatham Road compared to its predecessor Phillips House and also compared to the De Jongh houses.  On the very right hand side are Lyemun Flats.

On the left is the Peninsula Hotel, and right of the hotel should be another one - Rose Hotel.

Hong Kong (Kowloon) Marie, Amah and Bigsis

Text on Flickr:

This house stood in the district of Tsim Cha Tsui, Kowloon, on Chatham Road S., between Prat Ave. and Cameron Rd. View is north, with the Gun Club Barracks in the distance. Marie-Félicité, "Bigsis" and her Amah (Nanny) greet a passerby who looks a lot like Jules. More likely they're seeing him off to work.
