Duplicate?

Hi David,

Did you purposefully duplicate the photo of Des Voeux Road at Central Fire Station?

Hi Breskvar,

Yes, they're cropped slightly differently so I decided to leave them both in.

Tung Tak Pawn Shop may be demolished soon

It is amazing that Tung Tak Pawn Shop has been in the same building for so long!  I prefer the scene with the balconies -- it is more elegant.

About a month ago, there was a report stating that the building occupied by Tung Tak Pawn Shop and the tong lau (shophouse) building next door may both be demolished soon.  If you have not done so, this is the time to take some photographs.
