Hong Kong, in the 1950s

This photograph I have unearthed, was taken from our apartment in Robinson Road in Hong Kong, probably some time between 1956 and 1959 (I can't remember any longer when my father was posted there). Apart from the fact you cannot see this view from where this was taken (there are so many tall buildings there now) what is really noticeable is the distance between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. It's much less nowadays since all the land reclamation that has taken place.
