Kadoorie Beach, Tuen Mun, 18-3/4 Milestone [????- ]

Tag location corrected.  Believe me or not, I managed to dig out a map dated 1990 with the right information.  Back then before the Golden Coast was developed there was the Gordon Hard & the Perowne Barracks in the So Kwun Wat area.  No wonder they have a military coach going to and from the city area.


Soares Avenue [????- ]

Soares Avenue looking south east. The 7-11 on the left demarcates the starting point of the 'triangular plot' which housed the pro-Commie school. Now it is a residential block called Wing Ying Mansions.

Emma Avenue [????- ]

20081128 010 Emma Avenue (on the right) as seen from Soares Ave. This is also one of the corners of the triangular plot which housed the pro-Communist school. The Fourseas would have looked over the road about 100 metres further up - you can see the windows from the Metropark Hotel Kowloon facing the camera to the left of the bamboo scaffolding.
