The vanishing elegance of the Corner Tong Lau

Location: Gillies Avenue South, Hung Hom, Hong Kong


The tong lau corner tenements are disappearing, and the land-strapped community shows little inspiration to protect them. The old corner tong lau is fading away, and as each old building falls to "progress", a touch of the classical elegance of old Hong Kong goes with it.
