Hi there,

It's likely where Stanley Street meets Cochrane Street, facing west.  Strange enough, there was no street view on this section of the streets.

Thanks & Best Regards,


Thanks T.  For the time being, I'll leave the title as it is - your comment probably identifies the location very well. Andrew

In the 1970's I well remember seeing a street seller similar to these near Western Market sat with baskets of nondescript oranges and a rubber 'chop' carefully stamping 'Sunkist' on each orange before returning them to her basket .....wink

Hi Harry

What a lovely story.  Fortunately, we wanted to buy lychees.  She'd have had a job thinking up a brand name for them as well as a much more difficut task stamping them all!

Best wishes Andrew
