On Queen's Avenue, opposite HSBC Bank, there is a terrace on which is a small ocean building made of granite and red brick. It has a neoclassical style, antique and green shutters. This is a chapel built by a former French Catholic priest. It has experienced World War II and has changed hands many times. It used to be the Supreme Court of Hong Kong and the Government Press Office. Now it is the Court of Final Appeal of Hong Kong.
Walking on Queen's Avenue, at the HSBC Building, I looked up at a beautiful red brick building on the opposite platform. Unfortunately, it can only be exterior, not interior. This small building used to be the accounting office of the French Church in Hong Kong. After World War II, it was once the headquarters of the Hong Kong Government. Later, in 1953, the French sold the building to the Hong Kong Government, which had been the office of the relevant government departments until 1997, when it came to the Court of Final Appeal.
Behind the Standard Chartered Bank Building, next to St. John's Cathedral, if you walk up a steep, tree-shaded fortress, you will see the red brick building, the former French Foreign Missionary Building. The building was built in 1843 and changed ownership several times. Until 1915, the foreign missionary Church in Paris bought the building and rebuilt it. Its appearance has been maintained to this day. The whole building is made of granite and red brick. It belongs to the neoclassical style. There are few left in Hong Kong.
Nothing special. It's very pleasant to watch from afar. It's suitable for thinking about things there.
The scenery is beautiful. Uh, the food and play are very good. I hope you have a chance to play.
The neo-classical brick edifice is now used by the Hong Kong government. It has a great contrast to the modern skyscrapers.
If the building is high on the top floor, you can see the beautiful view of Victoria Harbour.
This place, is to visit, there is nothing special, but there is a certain symbolic significance, or to see, to satisfy curiosity.
The former French Missionary Building has time to visit it.
