Shows a few roads only in Kowloon, the longest being Robinson (later Nathan) Road.

There are other maps from the same time, but all are slightly different.

Map showing Southern end of Anderson Road, circa late 1960s

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos):

Map showing Southern end of Anderson Road, circa late 1960s. Part of this road has since been incorporated into Wilson Trail Sec. 3 and Ko Chiu Road leading to TKO Chinese Permanent Cemetary.

Haven't seen much info about this here or online elsewhere so I figured I should post it up in case someone wants to look into it.

This is a paraphrase of a document held at the National Archives in Kew, UK.

Early stages of plans from 1958 by the Admiralty, in conjunction with the HK Government, to reduce the size of the HK Naval Dockyard to a Small Ships Maintenance Base. Given the code Hemlock, it became Fennel and then Sandy Fennel, differing only in small details the result of consultation between the two parties.

Reduction of the Dockyard area was required by the HK Government to allow construction of a new road, and it suited the Admiralty, who were facing a force reduction.

HK map 1950's 2.jpg

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1950

Whilst going through old photos and papers from my father's time in Hong Kong (1947 - 1963) I found this map from the 1950's which may be of interest to some as it shows ferry routes and the old Kai Tak airport.  No tunnels in those days!
