The hillside in the background is Lung Shan seen from the north. I think Bryan was probably somewhere near to the Sha Tau Kok Road just north of Queens Hill Camp. Perhaps those long white huts back centre left were part of the camp? There is a similar (but restricted) angle on the hillside here.
Hi Bryan - do you mean the photo of the the row of shops? If so, it's possible this is Wo Fung Street behind Luen Wo Market in Fanling. There are still some similar looking buildings along that street. Unfortunately the view to the mountains in the distance are now blocked but the images in your picture do seem to tally. It would have been very close to where this picture was taken (just afew hundred metres) and perhaps you would remember the distinctive art deco market building?
With regards to the border crossing pictures - this is a bit more difficult but it looks like it is perhaps the road up to the police post at Lok Ma Chau? It would've been a fairly straightforward drive to get to from the Fanling area.
I was stationed there from 1960 to 1962 with the Royal Warwicks.
