Looking for Hong Kong expert

Hi, there,

I'm a writer who is looking for a local Hong Kong expert to provide a quote and/or information and/or cultural insight for an article I'm writing for an Internet site. I can't provide payment but I can tell you it's a very respected, well-known site. I can provide further details but it has to do with the funeral supply stores in the Sheung Wan area. If anyone happens to be in the funeral industry in HK that would be incredible. 

Des Voeux Road West - 3 (Hong Kong), 1980

Image caption on Flickr: The tramcar is working eastward in Des Voeux Road West, at Queen Street.

Comment: cav_hk .The tramcar should be heading westwards towards Kennedy Town. The building on the left side of photo was knocked down about 1 year ago for redevelopment and the building on the left side has turned into a multistory commercial building. One thing has not changed is the man with the push trolleys ferrying the dried goods on this road.
