Took this photo from my room at the Panorama Hotel (8A,Hart Ave.).

Early Sunday morning. I think domestic helpers, probably from the Philippines, are holding a Christian mass on Signal Hill.

At the upper part of the photo, the former saluting battery can be seen with concrete supports for the guns.

1930s TST Signal Hill

Think that 1930 is a good estimate for this photo.

Left is Holt's Wharf, then Signal Hill with (I guess) Signal Hill Battery/Blackhead Fort. The tower has its cupola, so its definitely between 1928 and 1933. Can't see the lighthouse.

Right of the hill are houses, likely DeJongh family residence, and then buildings under construction: Lyemun Flats / Lyemun Buildings / Harbour View Hotel.

Any other suggestions are welcome.

Signal Hill at Tsim Sha Tsui

Today I would like to share a view of the Signal Hill in Tsim Sha Tsui back in 1928 which was taken by sailors of HMS Suffolk in its mission in Asia. The description below marked "Entering Hong Kong Harbour". But it is easily to guess it is the Signal Hill view from the water.

When we look in detail, we can also see the Holt's Wharf clearly and on the back it is the Peninsula Hotel.
