The first chapter doesn't really have much until the very end, and even then it is observations rather than places he actually visits.
Initially he mentions seeing a small village next to a golf course (we believe it is most likely to be Shek O).
Their ship - the Corfu - came into Victoria Harbour via the eastern entrance as he points out a shipyard and a large factory complex. One of the factories had "Taikoo" written on it.
He also notes a "large cube of a grey stone building" (perhaps the Peninsula?) as well as an "ornate clock tower" - obviously the KCR TST Terminus.
Feel free to start adding photos and context to the above, don't forget the initial chapters occur in 1952.
