Where is this?-now identified as Shau Tau Kok & Starling Inlet

A location I cannot recognise. Long pier, very shallow shoreline, modern buildings plus off-shore islands 

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Thursday, June 15, 1978

  I believe this is the Shau Tau Kok pier looking East.

Hi there,

It is Sha Tau Kok alright.  The pier just couldn't be mistaken.

Best Regards,

Thanks for the ID. I should have known it as a friend lived there in the 1990s

Hello IDJ,

We are a grassroots organization at Nam Chung, Sha Tau Kok and we are working on a community history project to document the life histories of Hakka villagers and the changing way of life in the area. Our website is available here: https://peacenamchung.org (Sorry, no English version available yet.)

Your picture will be of immense value to our work. Middle of November the Nam-Luk Coalition is holding their dajiu festival (organized once every ten years). Just wondering if we can have permission to use the picture in an exhibition scheduled in November, and to publish it in a souvenir pamphlet. :)

Please get back to us at peacenamchung@gmail.com. Since gwulo.com does not seem to support a PM function.

Many thanks,
Kootyin
