Weiße Fracht für Hongkong - Dietmar Schönherr (1963) - Stubbs Road, Wanchai

In a very quick scene when the bad guy picks up his female victim (just prior to her being dumped, unconscious, into Lobster Bay) we see them driving down Stubbs Road in Wanchai. The reason I know this is Stubbs Road is because of the appearance in the background of King Yin Lei at #45.

The building is still there of course, but the roof on it is new due to the previous owner, Cheung Chung-kiu, demolishing it in a display of property developer vandalism (in general, the unwritten rules are if you can do as much damage as possible to render the property beyond salvage then less people will complain when you knock it down - taking out the windows to let the rain in is another commonly used ploy). Luckily members of the public manage to help save it by reporting the damage.

On another note, I see that Streetview has images of this part of Stubbs Road from 2017, which means the camera car must be doing some badly needed rounds.
