Heisser Hafen Hongkong - Horst Frank (1962) - Aberdeen, Hong Kong

There are a couple of scenes filmed in and around Aberdeen and its famous harbour. Some interesting angles that I haven't seen too many times including a view from the top of the building that used to stand on the corner of Aberdeen Main Road as it turns past the old restaurant pontoon area. See below. I'm not too certain about where this building would have been relative to today's configuration, but perhaps it was where the rest garden now stands on the corner of Old Aberdeen Main Street - or whether it's where there is a row of new buildings on the corner of (new) Aberdeen Main Street?

 And then moving down to ground level for some familiar scenery around the waterfront area such as the pontoons for the restaurants, the cemetery in the background and of course the distinctive shape of the (new) Tai Pak that had been installed just recently (sometime after 1960 but before 1962).
