Das Mädchen von Hongkong - Joachim Fuchsberger (1973) - Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui

A nice view of the pre-high-rise Peninsula Hotel as viewed from the harbour. It looks like it was undergoing some renovation of the east wing because all I can see is the fabric cladding that always gets put up when that kind of stuff is going on. To the left is the old YMCA building with the Hankow Centre behind it, and the old Marine Police HQ can just be seen on the far left of the lower picture.

  1. The Hongkong and Yaumati Ferry vessel in the foreground looks familiar - I can't read the name, but similar ferries are still in service with New World First Ferry today.

    Given the 1973 date, it must by Man Lai - launched in 1970, and since retired.

    1. Hi Marcus, there was also a brief shot of one of the HYF ferries with the words "Night Club" written on the side. Does that ring any bells? I can't read the name of the vessel though. Perhaps it was the forerunner to today's harbour cruises?
      Cheers, Phil
