Ferry to Hong Kong - Curt Jurgens (1959) - Rua da Ribeira do Patane, Macau

Given that the last post identified Ponte No.27 as location used for the Macau-based shenanigans of Curt Jurgens, Orson Welles et al, it looks as though the funeral procession we see on film is walking down Rua da Ribeira do Patane towards the pier location.

I initially thought this road might have been Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro given the number of columned shops along the road, but it turns out that Rua da Ribeira do Patane also had them in abundance, although most have now gone.


 Anyway, there are still a few remnants that remain, including the previously blogged about building on Travessa de Guelra. A couple of them also appear to have their original balconies as well. I believe that the taller blocks further down are more recent additions, but the Macanese developers responsible figured it would be a good idea to retain the road side columns. Either that or the original buildings have just had a couple of extra floors added, I can't tell.
