"Red Roofs"

I was born in that house on 16 January 1935, designed by my father, Georga A V Hall for a member of the Wong family.The house overlooked the old Kai Tak airport.  Mr Wong decided it was too far out of Kowloon, so my father rented it from him.  I have emailed Wilfred Tyson, a Wong nephew, to confirm which of his uncles had the house built.

The hill the house was built on was demolished to build the new extension Kai Tak runway.  I would love to have a photograph of "Red Roofs"
