Law Courts?

HKG 1960s Mike's photos



This was the Supreme Court in our colonial times and will eventually house the "highest law of the land" (well in HK and not considering mainland of course) again when conversion works complete in 2014.

I brought  Ah-Nghin (grandma in our Toishan dialect) to this building one day in late-1950s.  As my guardian, she took an oath so I could apply for a proof-of-age document.  Always remember this building and the helpful female staff who processed my application.
