Any ideas where that would be today? It isn't anywhere I recognise.

Hi David

The picture is taken from the bridge infront of the Lin Ka Fung temple in Tai Hang looking east.


Hi there,

Should be Lin Fa Kung Temple.



Thanks - I'd never have guessed that location! Now we know, I see there's a photo of the bridge and a similar background at http://gwulo.com/node/6373
