Yellowthread Street (TV Series) - Bruce Payne (1990) - Argyle Street, Kowloon

A quick establishing shot (for what I can't remember) that looks to have been taken from the KCR rail bridge that crosses Argyle Street.

I can't get the same angle from Streetview for obvious reasons, but the snap below gives a reasonable impression of how it looks today. Obviously there are a few extra skyscrapers in Mongkok these days, but the older tenements are still around as is the Argyle Street Water Supplies Department building (you can just make out the front face of it on the right hand side of the top screen grab).


  1. May I kindly ask which episode were the captures from?? Thanks!!

    1. Hi Cedric. These are from the episode called "Rummy's Cut". Cheers, Phil
