Buildings around the cricket pitch

Do you think this photo was taken in the 1950s or 1960s?

The covered walkway between the HK Club building and its annexe is just visible.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Sunday, January 1, 1950


There is a similar photo from the Hedda Morrison Collection. Judging from the trees that have since grown and the shot of the car, I would say mid 1950s. The former Bank of China buidling was completed in 1951. City Hall cannot be seen, so definitely not from the 1960s.

I believe the building on the extreme right is the old Butterfield and Swire HQ which was pulled down in the early 60s so it cannot be any later than that. Probably 50s.
