Kowloon City Police Station is at the junction of Prince Edward Road and Sai Kung and Kai Tak Roads.

Hi There,

The corner building in the middle appeared to be a fabrics\textile factory, as stated with the store sign in Chinese.  I am uncertain with the first word of the name as it is blurred, but it may be 義興祥布廠.

Comment from IDJ, moved here from a duplicate copy of this photo:

The same balconyed building which features in the beached ship images appears in this picture of the Ping Street area. Few pictures of this part of Kowloon appear to exist. Apparently it all disappeared when the Japanese extended the airport.
