Me Walking back from town 22 Oct 57

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1957

It was a long walk round by the Cape Collinson Road.  The final drop of the camp road down to the main gate is just visible.  My friends and I were not aware of a short cut through the Chai Wan village and into the camp through a small gate at that end of the camp.  It would have saved us the long walk round!  (Andrew S)

The film appears to be something like 'A Certain Smile'?

Your comment below and the one about the Hoover cinema is interesting.  I shall insert the same date for both films, simply to illustrate that, whether Frank actually went to both cinemas on the day that he took the photographs or not, sometimes when it was hot and humid we did go to two cinemas one after the other simply to enjoy the air conditioning inside.  (Andrew)
