This map reminds me of the extent of my exploration and shoreline then... the ferry dock on Tung Chau St,, playing soccer at the end of Cheung Sha Wan Road at Yen Chow St where a gate stood.  Beyond Berwick St was the start of the Shek Kip Mei shanty town.  Somewhere I saw a photo of the Pei Ho street sign (I believe at Berwick) showing the aftermath of the 1953 fire on one side and on the other side the unaffected buildings.  It also shows the locations of the theatres operating at that time.
