歲月神偷 白加道纜車站 Barker Road Station 2008, Hong Kong Now and Then

Photos of the Barker Road station of the Peak Tram. The old photo is from the 1910s, the others are from 2008.

On the old one Glenshiel is visible behind the tracks, this likely sets the date to about 1915. On the 2008 one Epworth Lodge can be seen.

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 

Bank of East Asia Generation 1 & 2
