Lai Chi Kok Road 1930s and Present, looking to northwest along Lai Chi Kok Road from Shek Kip Mei Street.  The red arrow* points to the pre-war shophouse at 264 which remains standing today, and a few shops farther up is Nam Cheong Street.

(*Edit May 3, 2018: The red arrow in the upper photo is slightly off.  It points at the fourth unit counting back from the small lane.  The correct spot is the second unit from the lane.  This lane has been filled in, but that across the road is still there.)

Mei Foo airview 1973

Mei Foo Sun Chuen first to third phase have been finished.

In between, some tanks of the former Mobil Oil Tank Farm seem to have survived.

The long building on the right was the KMB bus depot maintenance and parking depot. Right of it is a small basin, also visible on the photo from 1968. This was reclaimed in the following years. To the very right a bit of the Lai Chi Kok government incinerator is visible.
