    Thanks a lot for the interesting pictures and video. Would like to correct the actual Chinese name for the Ice House Street.

    The meaning of an ice house in the eyes of a Mandarin speaking translator is 冰窖. However, the officers in charge on translation in Hong Kong government at that time were all speaking Cantonese. Therefore the formal name became 雪廠街.

    Nowadays the Hong Kong people still call ice box as 雪櫃 and ice stick as 雪條 instead of 冰箱,冰棍 in Mainland China. Hong Kong people do keep the Chinese things with the original names, like: 冰糖,冰片.
