2014.8.2 | 石硤尾街 51 shek kip mei road
this corner building is at shum shui po near cheung sha wan. it is a ‘newer’ walk-up built in 1957.
look carefully, you can see the name of the building* is displaying on the facade top down in handsome chinese calligraphic style
even though the road sign says un chau street, the building is actually on shek kep mei street crosses tai po road.
i cannot find much background and info of this building. but from an old hk forum, i found a photo of it in 1960. it looked fresh and handsome then, with a big billboard of ‘pak fa oil’ (a chinese medicinal oil) on top of the building. there must be some connection between the product and the naming of it. if any blog reader know about it, please share.
the building is of mixed usage – residential and commercial. some chinese doctors are registered here.
