File2305.jpg | Gwulo: Old Hong Kong



Part of a collection of pictures made by Jim Watkins (deceased) of Henley In Arden, England while on military service in Hong Kong probably1947.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Monday, June 30, 1947


The film "The Virginian' was screened at the Queen's Theatre 25-28 July 1947. The next change "The Thief of Bagdad (sic)' was screened on 29 July 1947.

Thanks, that nails the date - not too far from Christine's original guess!

Regards, David

Note the scaffolding on the cantilever canopy.  There was no concrete canopy at the theatre entrance in photographs taken in 1945 or before.  Probably the canopy was built in 1947.
