Yes, this was the old southern playground at the junction of O'Brien road and Hennessy Road. I lived in 168 Hennessy Road from 1949 (when I was 9 years old) to 1955 on the top floor. My building was facing the North direction (the water front).

Would appreciate if you can post some photos etc on that and advise me if possible.


Happy New Year to you all


Many thanks

Hi Anthony,

Did you see the replies to your earlier message at http://gwulo.com/node/20021#17/22.27705/114.17394/Map_by_ESRI-1957_HK-Ma... ?

We'll be interested to hear any memories of Wanchai from that time.

Regards, David
