corner of Lugard and Harlech Roads
(2002) Streets – Exploring Hong Kong Island.
Hong Kong, Hong Kong University Press, pp. 91-97.
This quiet, tree-shaded sitting out area at the cornel
of Harlech and Lugard Roads is one of the few places along
here that has a public toilet. And being relatively remote,
they're almost always very clean, unlike the ones close
to the Peak Tram that arc invariably foul. The well- equipped
chi1dren's playground here seems unplayed in for the most
part, and the vegetation becomes quite thick towards the
flat area to High West. Remarkable as it may seem today,
in the 1920s this site was considered sufficiently far
away from houses to be used as a small firing-range; a
few elderly residents can still recall the sharp crack
of rifle Fire coining from here on a weekend afternoon.
The target butts were located facing High West and the
hillside, and were no longer used alter the Pacific War.
