1970s looking south and east. Tai wan rd bottom left corner. The top right corner New Whampoa estate (1976-1978) south of Tai Wan rd.  On the left the Holy Carpenter Prevocational School  聖匠職業訓練學校 established in 1965. Renamed SKH Holy Carpenter secondary school in 2002 which still exists today.

On the right a square with a lot of squatter hut businesses and also a factory. On the left  out of picture should be Tai Wan Shan estate on both sides of the road.

Bottom right a sign with arrow pointing to a Texaco petrol station on the other side of the road. It still exists today as Caltex after renaming of the company.

A 1968 areal picture shows how that area looked like:
