28 Tai Hang Road (勤屋)

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1960

This property, seen in a screen capture from the 1960 film, Visa to Canton, stood at 28 Tai Hang Road (now Kan Oke House).
It appears to have been demolished soon after this footage was taken - an aerial photo from 1963 shows an empty plot - before the site was redeveloped in the current Kan Oke House apartment block.

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.

Cavendish Heights (First Generation)

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.
