1927 Kai Tak Airfield | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong

1927 Kai Tak Airfield

1927 Kai Tak Airfield

Looks like Fairey Flycatchers over the Airfield. 

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Saturday, January 1, 1927


The aircraft images appear to have been inserted into the picture for some reason i.e. a 'mocked- up' image

However, its still an interesting view of the airfield and its surroundings. Normally we don't see so much of the background and the road leading away into the distance

Greetings, and thanks IDJ, I would never have given it a thought.  The sun's shadow on the fuselage differ from those made by buildings on the ground.  Am I looking along Argyle Street in the photo, and the water?  Regards,  Peter 

Interesting observations about the photo. Thanks. Kai Tak Road is the road on the left that merges with Prince Edward Road and Boundary Street further up.

The police station is visible, the building with the dark roof at the far end of the line of buildings on the left of the photo.
