Commemorative Plaque for the Outbreak
of the Bubonic Plague in 1894

Blake Garden, Tai Ping Shan Street

With its dense population and deplorable sanitary conditions, Tai Ping Shan was the worst hit area when bubonic plague raged through Hong Kong in 1894. Launching a campaign to sanitise domestic households, the government bought and then demolished the buildings there, later redeveloping the area into Blake Garden.
