Gloucester Road and Causeway Bay 1980

This is almost a panorama image (from two separate photos on Flickr) with a bit missing in the centre. I think it was taken from the pedestrian crossing over Gloucester Road at Percival Street. It shows the junction with the Cross Harbour Tunnel looking east.

Southorn Playground in 1932

1932

The photo shows Southorn Playground before WWII.  There is an open-air cinema, and it runs two shows in the evenings only.

The even numbers of the tenements on Hennessy Road are on the southern side.   House number 156 starts from O'brien Road, and goes eastward to 200 at Fleming Road.   A 4-storey high white building stands on 168-170 (or 166-168?) in the middle.  Corrections and suggestions are welcome.

This one is worth visiting on Flickr, as the original size copy has lots of detail.

There's a low concrete structure sticking out into the sea - visible just above the petrol pumps. I think that might be one of the pillboxes that were along this section of the coastline.
