As indicated from the 1920 and 1935 maps, the police station was situated on a ridge of Kun Yam Hill and above Taku Street. I think that the police station (inside the red circle) can be seen on this 1920s photo of Whampoa Dockyards.

Second generation Hung Hom Police Station was located at the junction Chatham Road North and Hok Yuen Street. It can be located on the 1956 Kowloon map on Gwulo.

Simtang pointed out that works for the police station building commenced in 1949, and the station was opened in 1950. The station was demolished when Chatham Road was widened; it is still there on an aerial photo from December 1977, and gone on one from September 1979.
