Whilst going through old photos and papers from my father's time in Hong Kong (1947 - 1963) I found this map from the 1950's which may be of interest to some as it shows ferry routes and the old Kai Tak airport.  No tunnels in those days!

The original route from Tsuen Wan to Sek Kong is shown in red. It was 23 miles long, running along the coast to Tuen Mun, up and around to Yuen Long, then across to Sek Kong.

Route Twisk, shown in blue, shortened the journey to just 7 miles.
