a nice old building 落落大方的舊樓

2012.11.25 | austin road 柯士甸道

this is towards the east end of the austin road. there are still a number of older residential/commercial buildings along this busy road. this well-maintained building looks like an energetic boat gets set on sailing.

just looked up the history behind the name of the road. it is named after john gardiner austin, the chief secretary served in the office of the 7th hong kong governor sir arthur edward kennedy.

好一棟雄糾糾(至少外觀上維修得法,)的舊樓,該是商住兩用,佔據柯士甸道東段這一隅。愛那弧度、密集大方的窗戶,還有陽臺。

加一筆道路掌故,此路由來第七任港督堅尼地的布政司john gardiner austin 的姓氏。
