The tag is just an approximate location.  I have not been to that location for nearly forty years so it practically a blank to me.

#133 Boundary Street, Kowloon [????- ]

Hi there,

The tag shown in the map is just an approximate location.  From a copy of the HK City Guide 2008 published by Wan Li Book Co. Ltd, #139 Boundary Street is marked at the location of Block 4 of Kent Court.  It would take a walk by to verify the exact location of #133.
