This the view from a small beach below (to the east of) my grandparents' house, The Rockies, on Cheung Chau. You can see that there was another house above theirs, which is on the ridge line in the background. Probably the site of or close to the current Salesian Mission Retreat on Don Bosco Road. This would have been taken between 1946 and 1953, which was the period when they lived there. Does anyone know anything about that other house?

Looking at the satellite views of the area, to the east of The Rockies just looks to be cliffs and rocks. So I think this is Nam Tam Wan beach  to the west of your grandparents' house. That'll make the building above them in the distance house #24.
