Foxbat - Henry Silva (1977) - Hennessy Road, Wanchai

One last one from Foxbat before I post up the mystery locations to my help page. It's the Chinese Methodist Church - the original one designed by Denis Bray's father and built in 1936 - that has since been replaced by a taller more modern (and slightly less interesting) version.

It's not obvious from this screen grab but the original building had some Chinese Renaissance elements to it including a pagoda like structure on the roof. The modern replacement - Methodist House - has tried to retain some of that feel but then has a massive skyscraper sticking out of the back.
