Shirley's World (TV Series) - Shirley MacLaine (1972) - Tiger Balm Gardens, Tai Hang

Shirley finally manages to get her subject to pose for pictures at the Tiger Balm Gardens. The gardens have of course since been demolished (let's face it, the CCP were never going to let that place - riddled with pro-Nationalist symbolism - go unmolested following the handover) and replaced by "The Legend". Fortunately, the mansion was spared (nothing overtly anti-Communist on it I expect) and is currently being renovated to be used as some sort of conservatoire.

You can never have too many pictures of this place, so here's a whole bunch.
