Peter, like many of us have always liked the strange shop names when translated into English.  Can anyone identify where this was taken, Wanchai?

I think one is on QRC looking east. “Hang On” Ivory shop has been around for quite a long period of time but no longer now. The taller building on the right I think is the King’s Theatre building.

Hi Moddsey,

You are probably correct.  I've just noticed what might be a dome on top of the furthest(?) building on the right.  If so, that ties in with several other photographs taken looking East on QRC.  Andrew

Yes, the King Theatre had a dome and confirms the location. One is looking east on QRC.
