Jervois Street, formerly called '乍畏街' instead of '蘇杭街', is an Eastbound street in Sheung Wan.

It is nearly parallel to Queen’s Road Central (皇后大道中).


It starts at Morrison Street (摩利臣街), via Cleverly Street (急庇利街), Hillier Street (禧利街) and stops at Bonham Strand (文咸東街).



Jervois Street was a reclaimed street. On the street, the shops mainly sold cloth, silk and female accessories from Suzhou (蘇州) and Hangzhou (杭州), there were totally eighty shops at that time. The Chinese people then called this street ‘蘇杭街’ in Chinese, meaning Suzhou and Hangzhou. The English name remained unchanged.


In 2014, there is no more shop selling cloth and silk on the street. The shops include restaurant, cha chaan teng, art & printing studios, and metalware shop. But there are still several old buildings and shops of more than eighty years old, I guess.



From Wikipedia, it is written ‘On December–28, 1851, a fire broke out and burned down Sheung Wan Market and hundreds of Chinese houses all around it resulting in 30 deaths. The fire led to the redevelopment of the whole district, which was supervised by Major-General William Jervois, then Commander and Lieutenant Governor of Hong Kong.’, this is the origin of Jervois Street.
