The tram to the Race Course is passing the On Lok Yuen Building on DVRC. Interesting to see the tram's concertina doors and the long wooden pole (just above wheel level) used for manually moving the tram's electrical tram pole to a different wire when changing directions at crossover sections. Further up the road on the right is the Jam Fair (Department Store) Building and Kung Sheung Daily News at 39-41 and 43 Des Voeux Road Central respectively.
