Pottinger Street (Stone Slab Street)

Pottinger Street was originally located between Queen’s Road Central and Hollywood Road. Owing to its steepness, stone slabs were unevenly paved on it to facilitate walking and allow rainwater to flow down along either side. In 1858, the government named it “Pottinger Street” to commemorate the first governor of Hong Kong. But as the whole street was paved with slabs of stone, the local Chinese called it “Stone Slab Street”.
