J. Y.: Historic steps and gas lamps

Historic steps and gas lamps

Friday, December 19, 2008

Ngopi-Yamcha Antiquities and Monuments Office : "The stone steps at Duddell Street, Central were built between 1875 and 1889. Four gas lamps surmounting the balustrades at the top and foot of the steps are the only surviving working gas street lamps in Hong Kong. The Hong Kong and China Gas Company which was originally founded to provide street lighting in Hong Kong continues to operate the lamps as objects of historical interest."
