Film still from The Black Dragon's Revenge (1975) showing the former Junction Road entrance to the Kowloon Chinese Christian Cemetery. Note the ornamental archway and the chapel behind the wall.

The archway, wall and chapel were demolished (when?) and replaced by a large Ossuarium building that now fronts Junction Road.

International Funeral Parlour 萬國殯儀館

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1955

Screen capture from the 1955 film Flight to Hong Kong. This wasn't a particularly important location for this film, just one of the many brief glimpses that were filmed to establish various scenes. In the film, this is supposed to be in Macau.

The main entrance was on the north east corner of the intersection. So the section of the facade on the left of the image faces Fenwick Street. The site later had the East Town Theatre and now has the East Town Building.

I think this shows what used to be the Morning Post Flats. This is a screencap from the 1971 show Shirley's World

Bonham Strand Public Latrines

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1977

As I delve deeper into film locations, I note that the 1977 film, Foxbat, features several scenes shot in and around what used to be the public flush latrines in Bonham Strand.

There is a mention of a tender for construction in a public works report dated 1941 (http://sunzi.lib.hku.hk/hkgro/view/G1941/309748.pdf) but I can't find any other information.

The building appears to have been in the style of Hong Kong art deco that is evident in many pre and post war structures.
