Looking for help to identify these photos my grandfather took when he was in Hong Kong with the British Army in the 1950s. I've carried out some research by looking at old photos but with limited success. The photos have also been shared with a number of Facebook forums. I'm really grateful for any help anyone can give as my goal is to build an album showing my grandfather's photos against the modern day photos of our time in Hong Kong. 



Identified as Haiphong Road

The original photo was taken from the opposite side of the road near the entrance to Whitfield Barracks. Strangely enough, one of the pillars with English lettering below matches the pillar in the original photo. The photo below shows both sides of the road and the camphor trees that line the former barrack walls.
