This is photo #3 in a consecutive series taken from the same 8mm film that shows what we believe is the Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda in 1948. This photo shows the immediate vicinity - looks like foreground - with boys on buffalos.

Hi David, David W and Moddsey -

I've followed David's suggestions and reloaded this photo "still" from the 8mm film (not using my TV monitor!).

This #1 photo is a much clearer image.I have also loaded an image #2 that is immediately to the right of the Pagoda so it can be see clearer. - (see next image).
