Hi There,

Likely an old entrance or exit of the previous building above.  That kind of stone wall means the site is quite old.  Might have to lookup the older maps around for the information of the previous building.

Hi T,

there is a wider view of the door and the retaining wall. I was just wondering what the number left of the door means?

The number has four Chinese words on top.  It refers to someone who buys second hand electrical appliances, and the number below is the phone number of this person.  It is quite common in some quarters to have such advertisements on walls.  Another common industry to advertise like this are the plumbers.
