Closed Area Crossing-Chicks Bridge

A sign next to the vehicle declares this to be CHICKS BRIDGE. Presumably the Bailey Bridge's erector

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Wednesday, June 15, 1949


I think this is the bridge at the Man Kam To control point.

An article on page 1 of the The Sydney Morning Herald, 15 Oct 1949, shows that Chicks Bridge was on the border:

HONG KONG, Oct 14 - Within the next few days the flag of Nationalist China will be hauled down at the northern end of Chicks Bridge and the five-starred red flag of Communist China will take its place.
