1930s Ma Tau Kok and To Kwa Wan

Taken from Sacred Hill (Sung Wong Toi Rock) looking south towards Ma Tau Kok and To Kwa Wan. Hung Hom should be behind the hills

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Tuesday, January 1, 1935


That's a great view. I'm always impressed by how high the hills at Hung Hom used to be.

Really nice photo. Is this angle further south than the village of Ma Tau Wei though since it shows the harbour?

I think one is looking towards Ma Tau Kok and To Kwa Wan. Have amended the title. Ma Tau Wei Village should be out of sight to the west of the Sacred Hill.


Same photo compared with today's google map with labels added.
