Lived in Hong Kong 1972-1992, two of those years January 82 thru April 84 in Tantallon Terrace, Kowloon Docks. A very enjoyable two years. We moved out and it came down shortly after.

Dear all, just had to add my five penarth. I stayed at Carlton Hotel with my parents in the 60's when my father and other BOAC air crew were stationed there on 6 month postings (Boeing 707's) . I remember the pool being built, boasting it was first hotel in Hong Kong with a swimming (not sure how accurate that was)

Looking at Google Earth I am 99% certain the building is still there and is home to HK Rainbow Mission a childrens charity on Tai Po Road which was the old road leading out to the new Territories.

I am stopping in HK in 18 days time and will make pilgrimage to see.

Best wishes

Peter Hill
