Heisser Hafen Hongkong - Horst Frank (1962) - Peak Road, The Peak

Okay, to make up for the lack of views in the last post, I hope this one is a little better. It's the view from Peak Road looking out towards Lamma island. In this case I can almost match the same angle using Streetview grabs. So once again, many thanks to Streetview :-)

In the above and below pictures, you can see the low wall with the gaps is the same one back in 1962. Sadly, the prominent modern haze prevents us from getting a nice clear picture of Lamma from Streetview - so I shall try and head up in the summer and grab some nicer ones.

This next picture is a little further round the corner (not too far) but you can see the nice views down towards Aberdeen Harbour.

And finally as the car drives past the camera we get a nice clear view over to Mount Kellet. Most of the buildings have been replaced by now. Not surprising really given the fact that this is prime HK real estate here. But it's nice to see that the mid-rise apartment block on the left - Block B of La Hacienda - is still around.
