Hi all, my first post here. Can anyone identify where this photo was taken?

It was uploaded by H. Grobe to the Wikimedia Commons under a free licence with no information attached other than the date, 1965. I've been trying to add the location, but I'm stumped!

I have poked around numerous locations on Google Earth including Aberdeen, Wah Fu/Cyberport, Tuen Mun, island east, Tsing Yi, Sai Kung...but nothing stands out in particular. Made more difficult by the reclamation and the fact that these buildings have likely been redeveloped.
