Nam Koo Terrace!

Well, I've just got back from my fourth visit to Hong Kong and it was excellent as  usual. This time round I strived to seek out as many historical buildings as possible. One of these was the infamous Nam Koo Terrace on Ship Street, Wan Chai. I have to say it was pretty much as spooky as it's made out to be, complete with the feral cats everywhere!

Does anyone know the full history of this place and what (if anything) is likely to happen to it? I've read the stuff on wikipedia but wondered if any of the Batgung folk have some inside info on the place?

Hong Kong's SoHo (荷南) District

Hey there!

You are all so very good at uncovering aspects of Hong Kong's colourful history - something that brings me back here again and again :)

I'm hoping somebody can point me in the direction of some info on SoHo. Admittedly it's a fairly recent name/district, so I suppose I would really be looking at info on Hollywood Road, Staunton, Elgin and Peel Streets. I'm researching an article on the History of the area, so any books or online articles/photos that you could point me to would be most welcome!
