HKFP History: A Brief Visual History of the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower

Built with red bricks and granite, the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower peaks at 44 metres and once dominated Victoria Harbour. It is now all that remains of the old Kowloon station on the waterfront.

Below is Victoria Terminus exactly 101 years ago, a few years after the line itself opened in 1910.

The plan for the terminus was finalised in 1904, but World War I delayed construction.
