Emmanuelle 2 - Sylvia Kristel (1975) - Postbox #47, Junction of Wellington St and Queen's Road, Central

Another post where I shall, perhaps stupidly, go out on a limb and make a stab at a location without any real firm evidence. The location revolves around the number on the postbox which currently refers to a spot where Queen's Road Central and Wellington Street meet up.

As you can see from the screen captures below, the postbox number is #47 and according to this rather excellent blog, it puts the current postbox of that number at this location. If this is a valid assumption then the building at the background would be the pre-cursor to the current Hong Kong Jewellery Building, built in 1984.


Anyway, I leave this one out there in case anyone has any firmer evidence that can confirm either way.

  1. This screen capture may also captured the original look of the herbal medicine shop "Shing Chai Tong", where the whole interior decor was preserved in the Hong Kong Museum of History. It noted that the address was 180 Queen's Road Central.
