Proposed second Peak Tram – 1908 – the route

New information in red. IDJ has sent the following:

Tram - second Peak route - PF Leeds pp 9-12

The Development of Public Transport in Hong Kong, PF Leeds, 1984, p 10

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?
