大閘 old building gate

2010.3.11 保德街 bo tak street |

雖然各家有各家的門鐘,但還是覺得唐樓的大門很有人性。可惜的是,這棟六層的樓房前後座,已經給地產財團收購封樓,不知什麽時候便大興土木。

for security purpose, front gate should always be closed. how can visitors notify people upstairs when they call at the building, without the installation of hi-tech, which means expensive surveillance device? each apartment has its own door bell, from top to bottom accordingly.

old style low-rise buildings, we call “tong lou 唐樓”, have more humanity, personal touches. sadly, this building like many in the western district has been bought by property opportunists and sealed off.
