1936 maps of the New Territories

Christopher Lavender commented: “I have come into possession of a WD map of HKG from 1936. I never knew that the hill features near the border were named Cheviots , Mendips and the North and South Downs. Also Snowden in the other photograph I assume to be ‘Nameless’ as it lies north of Kai Kung Leng.”

John Harrop noted that there appeared to be a race course near the site of what subsequently became Gallipoli Lines.

  1. I knew about the River Indus that ran through Gallipoli Lines and Beas River, but I had no idea that the other rivers in the vicinity had also been named after those in India: Ganges, Jhelum, Chenab, Sutlej &c.
