This is the pair to "Tolo Harbour 1929" that I uploaded a few days ago. It is also from WR Fell's album of 1928-29 and has also suffered damage. There seems to be a railway line following the curve of the bay and a tunnel at the end.

This is the curve and old tunnel that popped out at Ma Liu Shui - later renamed University Station. The tunnel was still there until they double tracked the line in the late 1970's - the bend remains as it was but all that farmland at the side now holds the lower levels of CUHK.

You can see the cuttings on the slope above the tunnel where Tai Po Road runs around the headland.
