Ribarca + Hong Kong = amazing. I knew I was in for a treat when I clicked to view this thread.

Tremendous photos. The second one in particular is ridiculous.

Unfortunately none of those buildings is left. The street is called Queens Road Central and is now filled with concrete buildings like anywhere in HK. Preservation was never a priority and it still isn't. On the other hand many of those buildings were not built for eternity.

Freaking awesome photography, Ribarca. Thanks for sharing!

If I may ask: How affordable is an HK apartment at that place? Looks like an expensive location, facing the sea and overlooking the city's core.

Excellent! The black and white shot (taxi) and the blue bus are super.
