Okay, so the term 'cottage area' probably conjures up various different images depending on where you might live. For instance, in my homeland - the UK in case you didn't know - a cottage area is either a place filled with quaint little country houses or an area where you might bump into George Michael...
However, in the context of Hong Kong a cottage area is basically a bit of land filled with temporary housing such as squatter huts. They were prevalent throughout the territory until the Govt embarked on their - rather impressive - social housing project.
The Braemar Hill cottage area was fairly extensive and had already been featured in The World of Suzie Wong as the location of Suzie's house, but here we are again - 5 or 6 years after Suzie and the place is the scene of some espionage courtesy of Culp and Cosby in So Long, Patrick Henry.
I particularly like the last few snaps because you can see that the film crew had managed to capture Tiger Balm Gardens in the background. Of course, these guys have already been there during the pilot episode Affair at T'sien Cha, but this is definitely on a much sunnier day compared to then. Actually, despite the gardens being redeveloped, the wall in the background of the thrid from bottom picture is still around - as is the watchtower.
