Noble House (Mini series) - Pierce Brosnan (1988) - Harbourfront Promenade, Tsim Sha Tsui

The Avenue of Stars is currently shut undergoing some sort of half-hearted renovation, but here is a quick picture of what it used to looks like before the nonsense ensued. Not much difference other than there is a clear lack of Mainland tourists and the view isn't obscured by some naff plastic photo-op construction.

Anyway, here we see the place as it was - just a normal waterfront promenade. This is where Bartlett and Ramos go for a little walk. Thankfully they picked a day when the opposite wasn't obscured by the more usual blanket of thick smog that has descended on the place over the past few years. Look carefully and you will be able to make out the area around Central: the Tamar building, the old Furama Hotel, City Hall, Hutchison House, Mandarin Oriental, HSBC etc.

  1. If you continue out of picture left, eventually you get to a little sitting area, tucked behind what was the New World Centre. There used to be a huge sculpture of a Tissot RockWatch there, carved in the top of a colossal block of marble or granite. If I remember correctly, it had a working clock installed in its face, and the otherwise rough-hewn block of stone was perhaps four feet tall. Must've weighed a ton, I wonder where it ended up?
