Hi there,

The scene here did not change much from the 1930's through early 1970's.  That's whey the developers started pulling down most of the shophouses in Wanchai.

I still remember the shop house on the left and one of my primary classmates lived in one of those just about 30 metres away from there.

Best Regards,


The Lee Theatre probably opened to business on 10th February, 1927 with Cantonese opera.
