Proposed second Peak Tram – 1908 – the route
New information in red. IDJ has sent the following:
Tymon Mellor has sent the following. Namely, an objection to the building of the New Peak Tramway dated 30th Nov 1908.
“A humble petition of Domenico Pozzoni, Vicar Apostolic of the Roman Catholic Church on behalf of the Roman Catholic Community of Hongkong”
‘New’ because this was a proposed second tramway which came to nothing. I wonder how much this was result of the objections of the Vicar Apostolic?
