Cheung Chau Electric Company – further information
Hugh Farmer: This page comes from the CLP website.
It contains much information of great interest to us, including:, ” In the 1950s there were many small factories of leather, incense, paper, ice and shipbuilding on the island”.
Secondly it reports that “kerosene was the fuel for electricity and thus the cost was high”. I had never heard of this method of generating electricity.
Can you supply more information?
