No, but they are, generally, out of focus.
Mine would be black and white, Jimbo....I remember when
taxi flagfall was $1.80
2nd class star ferry ride was 15cents
we had a one-sided 1cent 'banknote' and utility companies used them to give you change
fruit popsicles were 10cents
there was a big fruit shop on the corner of Queen's Road and Pedder Street, where HSBC stands now
we had western movies at the Queen's Theatre and Chinese movies at the King's Theatre which is where Entertainment Building is now
there was no MTR....and when they were building it...and the first line running to Lai King
there were conductors on the Peak Tram
you got bus tickets on the buses, little flimsy pieces of paper given out by a conductor
there was a beautiful old building on the corner of Connaught Road and Pedder Street, the old Post Office
......I'm sure I remember much more but the brain cells just aint what they used to be!!
Fiona, and the old Lee Theatre in Causeway Bay (although much later than those others you mentioned). Miss that one.
There was also the queuing at Central Post Office on Sunday by the metallic steps on the outside of the building, which went up to the first floor. The door in the side of the building is long bricked up now.
*Re dining - OK you can dine at food courts but that would drive you mad after a short while.
The Post Office, I remember that....and the fact that the mail boats used to draw up to the building at the back to take the airmail over to Kai Tak for dispatch.....and look at how far away the harbour is today, from the Post Office!
