Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
Our random article today is Bonham Strand.
Bonham Strand (Chinese: 文咸街) is a combination of two streets in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong: Bonham Strand (文咸東街) and Bonham Strand West (文咸西街).
As the name suggested, it was a strand and close to shore in the past though it is pretty far from the seafront after several reclamations over a hundred years. This street renders the early shore line after 1842.
The streets are named after Sir George Bonham, the third Governor of Hong Kong (1848–1854), who led the reconstruction effort of Sheung Wan after a fire destroyed part of it in 1851.
