Five Golden Dragons - Bob Cummings (1967) - Harbour view from Midlevels, Central

The next section of film takes place in and around the Central Mid-levels area - largely Magazine Gap Road and is worthy of a few posts. The first is a view from a mid-levels high rise (not identified, but judging from the angle on various buildings I would place the camera somewhere around #1 May Road).

The view starts off looking directly down onto the banks before panning right and taking in the character's taxi as it makes its way along Magazine Gap Road.

The buildings with the yellow and white colour scheme look to be the predecessor to the "Regence Royale" development along Bowen Road. Actually, if you look carefully you can see a more distant brown building to the right of there. This is the former Bowen Rd Military Hospital - now the home of Carmel School. If you click on the location information at the bottom of the post, I have pinned the marker where the car is driving.
