Rutter Street [c.1870- ]

Date Place completed: 
c.1870-01-01 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)

Also named Rutter Lane. Short road in Tai Ping Shan. I'm not sure if the stairs at the end of the street still belong to Rutter Street.

First photo is from 1870 when is was more a path than a road.

Date Place demolished:

The land was resumed and the buildings were demolished by the government in the mid 1890's due to insanitary conditions of the area being responsible for the plague epidemic.

No 36 Sai Street [????- ]

An old tenement building in Tai Ping Shan with a sloped roof. 

Definitely pre-war, the facade is also similar to buildings in pictures taken around the time of the plague epidemic, although it doesn't seem likely that it could be that old.

Its been empty for years, does anyone have any more information on this building?
