Fa Yuen Street and Prince Edward Road junction [????- ]

This photo from the 1950s(?) was taken on Prince Edward Road, facing East. To the left is the spire of St. Teresa’s Church, the railway bridge, and the building on far left is most probably the Tong Lau which is still standing: #190 to approximately #212 Prince Edward Road. This block is referenced at Prince Edward Road W Shop Houses.

An interesting building at Shantung Street and Nathan Road, Mongkok [????- ]

Hi there,

This one is interesting.  This location used to be the Lung Fung (The Dragon & the Phoenix) Restanrant (龍鳳大酒樓), which was visible in some of the Ritz Theatre photos posted last year.  I do not have proof, but I have an impression that after the restaurant folded the house was remodelled into the current building now:

#24 Mongkok Road, Mongkok [????- ]

This one had been fully re-modelled.  If it's not of the pillars I would have missed it when I walked by the footbridge right before it.
