This was the most popular shopping/tourist location in Kowloon during the 1950s and 60s. What come back to mind also are the 4-5-6 shop selling the popular Arrow shirts, and the man sitting inside the small booth selling cinema tickets and marking off the seats on his plan with a colour pencil - $1.50 for front, $1.70 for rear, and $2.40 for upper level. On the left was the "one-eye guy tea shop" and the store that sells birds, but I always wonder how these two can afford to operate there.
