Former KCR Clock Tower


This 44m-high clock tower (1915) in red brick and granite on the southern tip of Salisbury Rd was once part of the southern terminus of the Kowloon–Canton Railway (KCR). The station was demolished in 1978 after operations moved to the modern train station at Hung Hom, but you can see what it looked like at the Hong Kong Railway Museum in Tai Po.
