Cemetery on road test route (Kowloon side)?

Phil, perfectly deciphered, but where is the cemetery located?

good question. My first thought was Wo Hop Shek but I can't find a fit with the hillsides at the moment - plus wiki says it opened the following year. I'm not sure where else there were large cemetery terraces like this. Unless it's a small cemetery at the front and the rest are rice terraces? The hill in the background may provide the key.

Hi There,

Might be Heung Shek Cemetary up on Tai Mo Shan.  If the photos is a set, maybe going through the sequence may yield something.
