At the end of this short (2:54) film a man walks across the bridge.

Re: The photos and current discussion on the NT Pagoda (Tsui Sing Lau ??)

- this 'still' frame is from the same 8mm film and was taken just prior to the footage of the pagoda, if not the same day then probably the same week in 1948.

I am presuming it is a crossing somewhere on the border  - does anyone know?

(I've uploaded another two photos of the same building and fencing.)
