1961 Doug Brentlinger's photos

Comments

For this photo Doug was on Repulse Bay Road, south of No.16, and this time captured Mount Cameron in the distance, with Mount Nicolson on the right and Shouson Hill on the left. There seem to be structures on Shouson Hill, but no other buildings are seen back in 1961.

  

Looking left to right at the buildings in “todays” pic below, the houses on the extreme left are on the north ridge of Shouson Hill, then there's a white building which is the upper floors of the obscured tower-block “Glendale” standing in the valley housing "Little Hong Kong", and lastly the grey building in the middle is an electricity company facility.
