May Road - origin of name

Submitted by patricia on Thu, 01/16/2020 - 10:46

I've been asked recently about May Road.  I'd assumed that it was named after FH May, Governor 1912-19 ... and at https://gwulo.com/atom/23602 Gen Suzuki gives us the Wikipedia entry for it which say so.  

But ... it was started in 1907 and the person who signed the announcement of its naming in the Government Gazette was none other than then Colonial Secretary F H May - see  http://sunzi.lib.hku.hk/hkgro/view/g1907/6398.pdf
