Ein Sarg aus Hong Kong - Heinz Drache (1964) - Various Harbour views

I have a bunch of unidentified location still pending for this film (see my help page) so will finish this one for the time being with a variety of clips in and around the harbour area. If you look closely there are some familiar buildings to be found. For example in the top two pictures you can just make out the Marine Dept Building that was later demolished to make way for what was Vicwood Plaza but is now called Infinitus Plaza. It's on the far left in the lower picture.

In these next pictures we can see a tall building next to the old Central Fire Station. The building was originally the Hang Seng Building (which we saw the front of not so long ago) but was later renamed to the Nexxus Building, and is still around albeit in a vastly updated facade. The fire station was replaced a long time ago and strangely enough is now the site for the newer version of the Hang Seng HQ. Note in front of the fire station is the old vehicular ferry pier.
