瘦薄唐樓 a thin walk-up (tong lau) in central

2015.2.3 | 荷李活道 45 hollywood rd

45 hollywood road

荷李活道與擺花街這個交匯處,形成中環低半山位置一個有趣的三角地帶。

慶幸馬路兩旁的唐樓舊樓面目不變,不似上一格的史丹利街兩旁都有拆樓。

喜歡從這角度 - 荷李活道住好的位置往東望 -觀望45號這唐樓,因為比較少唐樓,可以一眼觀賞到身前身後而且那麼瘦削的體態。

記得從前這列樓宇地面舖位都是一些舊物古董或者地毯的商店。今天可剩下一家「平價店」有紅色招牌門戶的舊商店。

there is an interesting triangle at this crossroad of hollywood road and lyndhurst terrace. and, more interesting is this thin triangular spectacle of this walk-up building at no. 45. isn’t it wonderful to have some lower buildings along streets so that people walking along can have better sights and scenery and sunshine on their journey.

sadly to know that one block up, at stanley street a number of low-rise being torn down. dust and sadness is overwhelming there walking past the very short stretch.
