Arch - 1949 - Fanling(?)

Arch - 1949 - Fanling(?)

Does anyone recognize the arch below from any other photos or anything you've seen anywhere?

The photo is taken of my grandfather, who did his (British) national service in Hong Kong between 1948 and 1949. He remembered the arch (and a house) from Fanling shortly after a storm on the 9th of September 1949. (Googling these dates indicates it may have been "Hurricane Nelly") which hit Hong Kong around that time.

I went to Fanling with my wife and we tried asking some random old people, but none of them recognized the archway in the photo :-) 

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Friday, September 9, 1949
