Whan-Chia Causeway Bay

Whan-Chia Causeway Bay
Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Friday, February 1, 1957


Victoria Park is still on the north side of Causeway Road ( right side of picture). The Central Library now occupies the former site of the army barrack in front of the 4-storey Morton Terrace on the left side of this picture. The three identical government- quarter buildings on Leighton Hill gave way to luxury apartments.  The Hoover Theatre Building  (above the Longines sign) , once a prominent landmark of Causeway Bay , is today completely drawfed by much higher buildings which block even the ridge line of Mount Cameron if this picture is taken from the same spot now.
