Of particular interest for me was this rather elegant corner building with its open balconies. Anyway, it turns out there was enough information on screen to make a positive identification - largely courtesy of the building just to the left of the lamp post in the first picture.
Thomas was able to identify the place as a branch of the Liu Chong Hing Bank (廖創興銀行). It's not easy to see but the English name is also evident on the building as is the words "Kowloon City Branch". With this in mind Thomas asked a friend who lived there if he knew anything. Luckily his friend's mother-in-law remember the shop next to the bank. Thomas highlighted it below on another screencap.
The shop was called 煥更陳 and was along Prince Edward Road West near the junction with Nam Kok Road in Kowloon City. What a great find, but what is perhaps even more astonishing is that the building containing the aforementioned shop is still around. And what's more, it still has the same square patterned window frames! Here is the Streetview,
Sadly the corner building with the "Amoy" sign on it has now gone - but part of it was still in-situ until only just recently as you can see in the Streetview picture. Although the corner section of the block was demolished some time ago (around 1966) the section immediately next to it remained. Chow Tai Fook were the last company in there and you can see their shop in the Streetview picture above. Below is a closeup showing how the newer corner section (left side) was separated from the older bit on the right.
At the top of the right hand section you can see that the art deco/ziggurat style roof decoration (you can see it in the black and white screencaps) was left up there - albeit chopped in half when they demolished the corner section to the left. Sadly, as confirmed by Thomas who visited the site the other day, the whole block has now been demolished and is being replaced by a high rise.
So anyway, a very big thank you to Thomas who has, once again, gone above and beyond the call of duty to track this one down.
