西環的界址

這是篇重複的博客, 用於測試BLOGSPOT 的操作及性能,原博客發表於2007年9月.



說西環,道西環,首先還是要先為西環正名. 西環(又稱西 區)是香港的地名,通常有兩種的意思。 廣義上的西環,泛指香港島西區,即中西區西部上環以西 的地區,包括堅尼地城、石塘咀和西營盤等地,但不包括 摩星嶺。西環的名稱源自19世紀的香港行政區劃的「四環 九約」,第一環正是西環。而九約中第一、二和三約則分 別為堅尼地城、石塘咀和西營盤。 狹義上的西環,是指堅尼地城。以前中華巴士的巴士路 線,位於堅尼地城的巴士總站多稱為「西環 (West Point)」。目前絕大部份的公共交通工具均以「西環 (Kennedy Town)」稱呼其位於堅尼地城的總站。 然而我想加上一筆我所理解的西環的地界範圍, 一般西環 友所認同的西環界址, 東邊是卑路乍街與皇后大道西交界 位, 西至堅尼地城的巴士總站(即堅尼地城焚化爐隔鄰), 北面前臨卑路乍灣, 南面則伸展至蒲飛路和薄扶林道的交 界. 最後顺帶簡述一下西環的歷史; 堅尼地城,最初寫作堅彌 地城,俗稱「西環尾」(意即西環的盡頭),是位於香港 的香港島北岸居住區的最西端。它是香港最早期被開發的 地區之一,地區行政上屬於中西區。堅尼地城來自香港第 七任總督堅尼地(Arthur Edward Kennedy)。他任內積 極開闢土地,填築了西區岸邊土地。這片沿海的新填地稱 為堅尼地城。早期港島北面海邊的街道英名多為 「Praya」,中文稱「海旁」,因此堅尼地城沿海的一路叫 做為堅尼地城海旁。「海旁」和「praya」都是指海濱一塊 條狀土地。而於香港日治時期,堅尼地城曾被改名為山王台.

  2. Hey Anthony I posted you earlier about the 1930s and I was hoping if you have any photos of 1930s 石塘嘴 you would like be delighted to share?

    After a period of research I know that it is very rare to have photos of 塘西風月 and you seem to have well kept collection of Hong Kong's past.

    I'm currently doing research for a film and it mean alot to the film if we have photo references of that period. We are trying to be as historically accurate as possible and hoping that you can share some of your precious collection.

    Thank you in advance and I hope to be in contact with you soon :)

  16. why don't you just post the weshare and xuite links here so yahoo old blogger can go to there and keep going there, cause lots of people still don't know how to use google blogspot, in that case we all move to weshare or xuite. I will promote your blog at facebook, individual or groups there so they can join your blog very soon. leave me a note in my facebook. https://www.facebook.com/ckanitalo == thanks
