You are absolutely right that it is not Chai Wan but it is also not Shek Kip Mei. It is the long gone resettlement estate buildings on Tsui Ping Road in Kowloon.

I don't think it is a photo of "Chai Wan" because the red bus was owned by Kowloon Bus Company. It looks like... Shek Kei Mei Estate.

Chai Wan.

Hi Queens, yes probably. I studied in Yuk Kwong kindergarten just on the top level of Block 10. How about you? I revisted the place several times after moving out, but that was more than 20 years ago...a long long time.

Hi Joey, I was born there in 1964 and I guess you and I might have gone to the same kinder garden. A lot of memories from this picture and I just sent it to my brother to share the other day! Have you ever gone back to revisit?

Thanks for the sharing! These pictures recall a lot of sweet and sad memories. I lived in Block 10 of Tsui Ping
Road Estate since I was born in 1965 and moved away when I was 10 years old. My mother was passed away three years ago. When I watch these pictures, I can still remember how mother did her cooking outside the door of the small flat, and washing clothes in the public water room. I miss her so much!

Enoch, my family also lived in Block one across from the high school. We might have been friends since all the kids played along the shared hallway and the women also cooking there too. Remember the horriable public washroom, sometimes wonder how we could live in that kind of environment!!!

I cannot believe that you got this photo, that was the government housing and I lived there from day one I was born,( 1964) and we left there in 1968. I remember the hospital up in the middle of the hill. In 1997, I went back to visit HK from Canada and all that disappeared.
Thank so much for sharing!!!!!

Hey People,

You can do street view on to compare the old with the new.

I used to live on Tai Po Road very near Shek Kip Mei. Thus, ..are familiar with these buildings shown here. Yeah, Many Childhood friends lived in Shek Kip Mei.

My wife lived in Block 13, as a child, and remembers firing firework rockets across the road at Chinese New Year, in FUN battles with the other blocks ... she says it was great fun....

I lived in the 1st block (i don't think it is shown up here in the picture) until 1969 when I was six. I studied in the school on top of our block for a year. It brings back some interesting flashbacks: Playing an d watching TV in the park (Yes, there was a public TV set in the park. It was turned on everyday in the evening), flying kites on the edge of the building, etc. Those good old day ....

Clarification: old 7-storey buildings in Shek Kip Mei are gonna be demolished soon, but those on Tsui Ping Road, Kwun Tong were long gone since the 80's!

No, Paul, those old and demolished 7-storey buildings were on Tsui Ping Road, Kwun Tong but not in Shek Kip Mei. I watched the T.V. tonight saying those 7-storey buildings are gonna be demolished soon. In fact, I was raised in one of the 7-storey buildings on Tsui Ping Road, Kwun Tong!
