Supermen Against the Orient - Robert Malcolm (1973) - Yau Ma Tei Typhoon Shelter, Kowloon

In the final opening credits post we get a brief glimpse of the old typhoon shelter in Yau Ma Tei. The view here shows the northern end with Cherry Street on the left as the northern limit of the shelter. The reclamation that can already be seen along Ferry Street (running along top of picture) was the formation works for what would become the West Kowloon Corridor. The white building top centre left is the Kwong Wing building and is one of the remaining buildings still found in the area.

Despite being referred to as Yau Ma Tei Typhoon Shelter, strictly speaking this section is in the vicinity of Mongkok and Tai Kok Tsui. It's all been filled in now and this exact spot now supports Park Avenue and Ho Fui Court residential developments.
