1910-1920s Chatham Road

The first section of the road (running from Salisbury Road to Granville Road) was completed in 1888, and was named Des Voeux Road after Sir George William Des Vœux, the 10th Governor of Hong Kong. The road was renamed “Chatham Road” in 1890 after William Chatham, Director of Public Works of Hong Kong Government; the name Des Voeux Road was later transferred to a series of Des Voeux Road newly completed along the north shore of Hong Kong Island. Remotely, this road related to the 1919-06-26 Racecourse Mat-shed Great Fire.
