The Main Enterance

Yi Tai Study Hall, Hong Kong view map

With the introduction of modern education in the early 1900's,
the Study Hall was converted into a primary school with about thirty students.
Since the Japanese Occupation of Hong Kong (1941-1945),
the building had been left vacant and unattended for tens of years.

The use of orange and black seems to be a favorite decor in China.
