The inscription on this battered photo proof from my family's collection needs verifying. It reads "Royal Rose, winner of the Foochow Cup."  Hong Kong Race Meeting 1914. I've seen it reproduced in one of Trea Wiltshire's books, but haven't been able to refind it.

The very recognizable figure of Sir Paul Catchick Chater can be seen leading his horse. My recollection is that Chater's horses were usually called "---- Dahlia" and that the "Rose" stable belonged to another prominent owner. The names of horses were usually changed when they changed owners.

Reading the Legco accounts about Chatham Road there's a reference to Chater Bungalow being turned into a playground (at least some of it), though the answer given is somewhat unclear. I know Liz Chater mentioned it in a post about Sir Paul Chater, saying some of it was turned into a golf course. Does anyone know the location? There's only three references on google: here's the legco ref:
