Yellowthread Street (TV Series) - Bruce Payne (1990) - Hung Hom Road, Kowloon

A scene with a car chasing Pak as the driver attempts to shoot him. This part was shot along Hung Hom Road in..erm...Hung Hom. It goes right through the centre of the main industrial estate and, as such, we can largely see factory and industrial buildings along the road.

All the buildings that can be seen at the far end of the road have gone, replaced by some school buildings in a couple of instance but some of the land is also still awaiting redevelopment. However, the factory buildings either side of the road in the bottom picture are still around. On the left hand side is the Focal Industrial Centre and on the right, built in the same style, is the Hang Ngai Jewelry Centre. Here's the Streetview showing a distinctly more green view of the road.

Interestingly, I have a friend who lives very close to here and apparently all the buildings south of Bailey Street have had height limits set due to an geotechnical engineering cock up when they were boring the large desalination works tunnel under the area.
