Info 

This hotel was built in 1982 and was connected directly to Hong Kong Kai Tak airport via a long walkway which ran via the airport parking garage (upper & lower left photos). The Five Continents Restaurant (upper right photo) on the 14th floor had spectacular views of the airport and runway; it was reportedly a popular place for off-duty airline crews to dine. Adjacent to the restaurant was the Flying Machine Bar.

Tsim Sha Tsui 1954

View along Nathan Road in southerly direction possibly taken from the HK Telephone Building. The largest building is the Peninsula Hotel, and we can see a couple of roads going west (right): Salisbury and Middle Roads near the hotel, then Peking Road, and finally (in the foreground) a short road that leads to Lock Road which didn't have a junction with Peking Road at this time.

Many of the houses visible were built around 1930, and they will be demolished shortly after this photo was taken.
