Heisser Hafen Hongkong - Horst Frank (1962) - Nathan Road, Yau Ma Tei

Another shot along Nathan Road, this time we are at the junction of Nathan and Public Square Street. The identifier in this shot is the brown building with the balcony to the left of the first picture. It turns out that this was the former Yau Ma Tei Government School and Richard Wong has a few pictures of it on his FLICKR page.

Interestingly, it looks as though part of the space once occupied by the school playground was never redeveloped and simply left as a...playground! It looks as though the school's wall stayed in-situ until at least the late 1990's despite the rest of the building disappearing sometime in the mid-70's. I suspect the phone booth was a prop but if anyone knows differently then feel free to comment.
