Tanks on the road

This photo has been sent to me by John Taylor from his father's archive of phtographs taken in Hong Kong in the 1950s. Looks like it may be Shek Kong in the vallley below. Any ideas Moddsey? 

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Sunday, January 1, 1950


Overlooking Sek Kong Plain. On Route TWSK (Twisk). Similar photos here and here for comparison. Follow the Kam Tin Road below.

Spot on Moddsey. 

Is the top left the sea, ponds or just lowland?

maybe the ponds on the north side of the valley. 

Just a combination of lowland, farmland and ponds. Maps of the area from the 1950s can be seen here
