Peak Tram Station, Garden Road 1959

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]

In 1889 the Garden Road Station for the Peak Tram opened. In 1935 a new terminus was built along with the St John's Apartments: a reinforced concrete building, with eight studio flats and a two-bedroom penthouse. In 1964 the apartments were demolished and a modern 14-storey commercial and residential building erected on the site. This building was in turn replaced by the current 21-storey building.  Garden Road is the lower terminus of the Peak Tram line. It is located on the bottom floor of the St. John's Building on Garden Road, Central, Hong Kong, 28m above sea level. The current station comprises a single track, with platforms on both sides. One platform is used for boarding, the other for exiting the tram. As the Peak Tram is a major Hong Kong tourist attraction, long queues are common in front of the turnstiles at Garden Road Terminus.
