      I love this set of photos! I haven't seen too many photos of my home during this point in time, let alone such fantastic ones! Your China sets are also really nice!

      Good work!

      Yes, I have many more photos of Hong Kong to share ... but first, I must scan and organize them!

      yes, it s wanchai. the tramway runs along johnston road here. the picture was taken facing east, towards causeway bay. a few steps back where u took the pic, on the left hand side was the former eastern portion of southorn playground. it then transformed to be wanchai mtr station in the early 80s and a new building rose up. on the right hand side, the big 3 characters, 大酒樓 on the neon sign suggest that it s dragongate restaurant, i suppose it remains there today.

      this would be just coming out of exit a3 of wanchai mtr and facing your left on johnston road (towards causeway bay), am i right?

      This is a valuable photo which was taken at Johnston Road, Wanchai:
      1. The restaurant (the neon light at roof top of the tram) has been closed in last year.
      2. The Tram 77 with the Tow Car, H.K. Tramway has been suspended the tow car from 80's because of the noise polluation.
