Five Golden Dragons - Bob Cummings (1967) - May Road, Midlevels

More mid-levels and apologies for those finding these scenes a bit tedious but I just feel the need to show everyone how HK used to look before the high rises became ubiquitous.

This time we are back over to May Road at the base of where #1 May Road stands (the building I believe this shot was taken from). Once again there was a nice open view where it's now blocked by Grenville House (built 1971) and you can see the same buildings mentioned in the previous post I just linked to (including the same small snippet of the British Military Hospital).

For comparison, here is a rough equivalent view courtesy of the ever-reliable Streetview.
