Central Market, Des Voeux Road, Central District

中環德輔道中環街市


The first Central Market was erected in June 1842. A more substantial building was built in 1858, superseding the first one. The second Central Market was demolished around 1890 and the third one was completed in 1895. The northern entrance of this Victorian style building faced the Praya (the present Des Voeux Road Central) while the southern entrance faced Queen’s Road Central. It was demolished in the 1930s, and rebuilt into its present form as a four-storey building in 1939.

早於1842年6月,第一所中環街市已經建成;及至1858年,一幢較為堅固的中環街市在原址落成。第二座中環街市約在1890年拆卸,至1895年建成第三座中環街市。圖中這座維多利亞式建築物南向皇后大道中,北臨海濱(即填海後的德輔道中),於1930年代中期拆卸,至1939年才建成樓高四層的今貌。
