Happy Valley

Image (external): 

AC-Studio has a great shot of Happy Valley taken around 1950 I guess. In the foregound is Tung Lin Kok Yuen, a Buddhist nunnery and school built in 1935, and the Jewish cemetery, together with its little chapel. The graveyard was first laid out in 1851 and expanded some 50 years later. All of those are still there. In the distance is Blue Pool Road. The houses lining the far side of the road have long gone; those who know the area will recognise it as the long-empty spot above the bordering granite wall where construction has recently started on a residential development.
