Yau Ma Tei Temple | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong

Yau Ma Tei Temple

Yau Ma Tei Temple

This is from HK Man's set of Old/new. The lower part of the picture is from Suzie Wong (1960).


Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Friday, January 1, 1960


This is a great comparison by HK Man. If you go to the FLICKR version you will see the building on the corner of Temple Street has been tagged.

It's also useful comparing the Suzie Wong shot, filmed in 1960, with the ones uploaded from "Soldier of Fortune" made in 1955.

I just realised that the building I am talking about (with the green window frames) is the Mido Cafe at 63 Temple Street. HK Magazine did a small article on it this week (18th Sep 09).
