Shows Nathan Road south of the junction with Gascoigne Road. The flyover has been built already. Right hand side is the sign of the Royal Hotel (with a crown on top).

Prominent on the left side is the sign of the Hong Nin [Savings] Bank Limited Hong Kong. Wikipedia reports: 

Hong Nin Savings Bank (Traditional Chinese: 康年儲蓄銀行) was a bank in Hong Kong, founded in 1921. The bank went into administration in September 1986 following defaults on several loans related to shipping, and was taken over by the colonial Government of Hong Kong.

Hong Nin was subsequently acquired by First Pacific and became known as First Pacific Bank, now (as of 2005) a part of the Bank of East Asia.
