Can anyone help with this photo please? Any thoughts welcome, i.e. where/what's happening/what's through the gateway? I guess if someone could translate the writing that would be useful! Apologies for the poor quality but it is a negative that I have scanned (hopefully the correct way around!) and then just reversed the colours. It was taken sometime between mid 1937 and late 1939. Thanks.


Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Saturday, January 1, 1938


The iron gates to Kat Hing Wai aka Kam Tin Walled Village. For comparison, please see here

Thanks 'moddsey'.

Here is a better version of the same Walled Village image (thanks to IDJ).
