Heisser Hafen Hongkong - Horst Frank (1962) - Jordan Road, Kwun Chung

Speaking of Jordan Road, one of the next shots we see is the viewpoint from the car driving along Jordan Road, albeit back towards the ferry pier. The two curvy buildings seen on the picture are still around - at least assuming I am correct in my identification (corrections welcome, as always).

It looks like the nearer curved building is the still standing Woo Sung House (built 1960) with a vertical blue sign for the Far East Bank Ltd. That means the building on the far right in the top picture is the precursor to today's Pak Shing Building with Woosung Street running between the two. In the background is another curved building that is still around. It's United Mansion and that particular section is Block A. Shanghai Street runs in front of it. Note the sign of a famous restaurant on a vertical blue signboard on the lower left of the bottom picture. It was the 雲天大茶樓 (Cloudy Sky Restaurant). The smaller buildings have all been replaced.
