Old Graves in Ping Shan New Territories


I'm looking for photos or other material taken in the Ping Shan of the New Territories before 1980. My family had an ancestral memorial (graves) there, within walking distance of Old Ping Shan police station. It was exhumed owing to the development of Hong Kong in the late 80's or so.

The location of the original site has been lost. I would like to collect more images and information of the surrounding area at the time, for the benefit of future generations.

Perhaps people who were based there took some photos? RAF Ping Shan and RAF Sek Kong (further east) were nearby. There would've also been officers from Ping Shan police station, whose regular patrols might've taken them past the graves. Later on in the 1970's and 80's, possily engineers and surveyors who worked on the various development projects nearby - Yuen Long Highway (Route 9), MTR West Rail, and Tin Shui Wai housing estate to the north.

Thanks in advance for any leads!
