Sixth Station/ Blake Garden, Pound Lane Bathhouse, and the Bacteriological Institute
Blake was the twelfth governor of Hong Kong from 1898 to 1903. During his tenure, he focused on dealing with the plague in three ways. The first was to improve the living environment of Chinese by increasing the green belt, which he did by demolishing the Chinese residential area around the Peak area and building the Blake Garden on its site. The second was to provide hygienic facilities such as the Pound Lane Public Toilet and Bathhouse, which were the first of their kind. What was more, in order to conduct pathological research and develop vaccines, Blake founded the bacteriological institute, which is now the Hong Kong Museum for Medical Sciences.
