Here's a funny one. This is actually multiple screen captures from a 1953 film called "Target Hong Kong" released by Columbia Pictures. The film was set in HK but it's quite obvious that the film used only stock footage for scene setting and no actual filming was done here. This panorama is actually reversed in the film, so I have had to flip it all around before merging into the above shot. I'm trying to date it. Obviously pre-1951 due to the missing Old Bank of China, and post 1935 because 3rd Generation HSBC can be seen.
I need the experts' help in narrowing it down. Any ideas and clues are most welcome.
