Commemorative Plaque for the Outbreak
of the Bubonic Plague in 1894

Blake Garden, Tai Ping Shan Street

In 1894, a plague raged in Hong Kong. Tai Ping Shan, with its dense population and deplorable sanitary condition, was the worst plague-stricken area. The government hence bought the buildings there and demolished them, and launched a campaign of cleaning domestic premises. The worst affected area had been developed into today’s Blake Garden.
