Noble House (Mini series) - Pierce Brosnan (1988) - Jervois Street, Hong Kong

Here is another location identified by Thomas. These is the scene when the old A-Mah is followed back to her house by the police (played by an uncredited Stuart Ong I think?) and there is a shot of her on the balcony doing some spring cleaning. I think regulars around the Jervois St area will be quite familiar with the building next to the Amah because it is still standing even if the old block she is in has since been redeveloped.


The modern day comparison is supplied by  Thomas, so many thanks to him for the ID as well as the picture. In case you don't know, the grey building now stands where the older one stood, but as you can see the shophouse next door hasn't changed a bit.

  1. Hi Phil,

    Street view also went through Buud street. If you go there and take a look at the building at the junction, you should be able to see some faint marks of a previous sign. One of the charactors looked like the word 行 to me.

    1. well spotted T, I see it - very faded on the grey stone. I will have to re-watch the video and see if it looks familiar.

    2. actually, on closer inspection, the thin brown building at the end of the street on the streetview grab I have can also be seen through the signage on the screen grab.

      Your ID of the location was pretty impressive.
