Declared Monuments in Hong Kong


 

Declared Monuments in Hong Kong - Hong Kong Island

Duddell Street Steps and Gas Lamps (Duddell Street, Central)
The exact year in which the flight of granite steps at the southern end of Duddell Street in Central was constructed is not known, but a series of maps of Hong Kong from the period indicate that they came into existence between 1875 and 1889. According to the records of the Hong Kong and China Gas Co., the four gas lamps at the top and bottom of the steps have been the only surviving working gas street lamps in Hong Kong since 1967.

Two-light Rochester models made by Suggs and Co., the gas lamps were designed in a shorter length than was standard at the time in order to allow them to be mounted on the parapets of the steps. Originally lit manually, they are now operated automatically.

Duddell Street Steps and Gas Lamps were declared monuments in 1979.
