Ein Sarg aus Hong Kong - Heinz Drache (1964) - Hennessy Road, Causeway Bay

Just before our intrepid heroes head off for their drinks at a dodgy bar called the "Green Snake" they meet up along Hennessy Road. The only real survivor that can still be seen is the apartment building at the back left - it's called Hennessy Apartments (Chinese name: 軒尼詩大厦).

If you are wondering where this would be in a modern context, to the right of the frame would be along the side of the current SOGO department store.

  1. Hi Phil,

    I believe these two could act as cross-references for https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-XoGJTozzBhU/VOipiC3T5DI/AAAAAAAAIL8/xJYSEFskQVQ/s1600/vlcsnap-2015-01-12-09h58m07s88.jpg as they all show the singnage of the 錦珍 store.

    1. Thomas - well remembered! I had forgotten all about this. I think I can also see the vertical red/white sign above the clock in that Emmanuelle shot as well. Cheers, Phil
