Historical Origin 沿革

 

The second campus of QC stood on the PMQ in 1889-1941. The campus building was erected in 1884-89 by inmates of the Victoria Gaol. As a majestic neoclassical architecture built in Doric style, the campus was then the second most expensive public building in the colony with a price tag of HKD 250,000. Unfortunately, this “Old Lady of Aberdeen Street” was destroyed during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong in 1941-45.

 

荷李活道前已婚警察宿舍地段於1889-1941年曾為皇仁第二代校舍。在1884-89年由域多利監獄囚犯協助興建的校舍屬新古典主義建築,採用多立克式設計,富麗堂皇,以造價約港幣二十五萬成為當時全港第二貴的公共建築。可惜,這座曾被譽為「鴨巴甸街的貴婦」的校舍於1941-45年日軍佔領香港時被炸毀。

Foundation Exhibition and History Gallery 歷史館及地基展覽

 

The Antiquities and Monuments Office discovered the foundation of the former campus and several other historical artefacts during excavation in 2005-07. The PMQ currently hosts a history gallery illustrating the development of Queen’s College, which is opened to public along with the former campus foundation.

 

2005-07年,古物古蹟辦事處發掘到前校舍地基及多件古物。現時「元創方」預留一展館以闡述皇仁書院的歷史,而前校舍地基亦開放予公眾參觀。
