Shatter - Stuart Whitman (1974) - Argyle Street, Mongkok

A quick one and an area that hasn't changed too much up to now and that is Argyle Street next to the Water Supplies Dept office at the junction with Sai Yee St.

The Water Supplies Building is the low rise one on the left hand side and the tall white building at the back is the precursor to today's "Glen Haven" apartment block. Look carefully and you can also make out the KCR rail bridge in the distance. One thing I am surprised to still see is the single column on the right. Looking at our Streetview image below, I would hazard a guess that the same column is still there today - a leftover from when the original shophouses were developed into Hong Lok Mansion back in 1959.
