Mystery photos # 2
Three more mystery photos, but with a different background: This week and next I'm working on a paid project for local publisher FormAsia. The task is to provide accurate background information on a selection of photographs, for use in a future book.
Here are the three that have me stumped - all suggestions welcome (please click any photo to see more detail):
The first shows two identical houses on a hillside.
The Peak or mid-levels would be the obvious guess, but maybe they could be housing for the armed forces, or one of the big hongs (dockyards, etc)?
The next one shows a street of shophouses, with distinctive curved balconies.
A copy of the photo appeared on Flickr recently, where local expert HKMan suggested Li Chit Street in Wanchai. Wanchai seems possible - the English-language signs suggest somewhere tourists would pass, rather than deepest Mongkok say. And the balcony style matches the recreated houses on that street today (photo from Phil's Flickr photo stream):
Would you agree with Wanchai?
On to the last one. Somewhere west of Nathan Road perhaps?
Again, thanks for any help you can give identifying these.
