Yellowthread Street (TV Series) - Bruce Payne (1990) - Quarry Bay MTR Station on Finnie Street, Hong Kong

Staying in the Quarry Bay locale with Angel Eyes as Tzi Ma & Co continue to try and keep Bruce Payne under surveillance. We get to see a view of the entrance/exit of Quarry Bay MTR station that sits on Finnie Street.

Okay, strictly speaking it's not the actual station, because that's on the opposite side of King's Road, but this place is entrance to the pedestrian flyover that leads into the station.

I used to come here quite often because the missus worked nearby so it's nice to see that it looks pretty much the same as it did 25 years ago.

A few differences I guess are the change in tiling on the outside of the station entrance as well as the building on the right seems to have filled in part of the window space on the 2nd floor. However, 成記 is still doing roaring trade even after all these years down on Hoi Hong Street, although they have reversed the order of the characters on their shop sign (red/yellow sign on the left of both Streetview and screen caps). There is a relic of a sign in the background as well - the vertical red on white on the distant left. You can see it in both pictures and it is advertising a plumbing supplies/hardware shop.
