【inland lot marker stone 內地段編號標記】IL 757

2018.05.08 |  興漢道 hing hon road 這是我第一次看到路牌上列明地段。是否因為私家街的關係,有待查究。 這條短短的街道,南斜上接般含道,東橫向盡頭是英皇書院操場後門。在這英文字母 L 型反向的角位,有樓梯北下通往薄扶林道。樓梯旁本來是露天今已轉為地下水道,此水就是薄扶林道下北接著水街的名字因由。 對此路很有感情,因為母校小學在般含道上,這裡是上學放學經常經過的路段。 從前這裡地舖是影印鋪,而一街都是典雅的唐樓大宅。可惜,往事如煙。 this is the first time i saw the inland lot highlighted on a road sign. wondering if the reasoning is related to this is a private road or not. hope that i can find out in the future. this is a short road, with […]

2018.04.29 | 廟街 151 temple street 從1950 年代開始,「單眼佬涼茶」已經鎮守油麻地廟街。 不能想像廟街這方地面少了這單邊鋪面,不能想像這片天空失去這正直大幅的霓虹招牌。 招牌頂小字橫寫「春和堂」,主題由上至下。 亮燈時,小字和外框紅色,招牌字白燈。 single-eyed man herbal tea has been basing at temple street in yau ma tei since the 1950s. just wish this historic shop & business and true people’s brand to stay healthy and keep its longevity for long. the neon signboard is simple and neat, […]

2018.04.14 | 衙前圍道  nga tsin wai road 此兩地段石標位於九龍城一清幽街道上。 這兩個標記不是記在立面,而是平刻於地面。 N.K. 即北九龍。暫時在網上未能搜尋到其他資料。 these two are lying on a nice and low density residential street in kowloon city. rather than standing up at the skirt of a wall, they are marked flat on the ground. a slight difference from others i saw around town, even though this […]

利瑪竇堂地標三看 ricci hall signages

2018.03.23 | 薄扶林道 93 pok fu lam road 香港大學一直獲貫以「香港最高學府」,近年受到社會時代政局的巨浪衝擊,你可能會質疑其不同方面質素水準之高度,但不能推翻的是其歷史與傳統之悠久。 利瑪竇堂明年便 90 歲了,今日的舍堂有新舊兩翼。看著鄰居女生舍堂何東堂沒有一點舊物痕跡,這邊廂的男生舍堂舊的部分尚存,彌足珍貴。 宿舍1928年奠基,1929年開幕。兩墩地標一左一右座落薄扶林道車路入口,中英文深刻正統的字體,刻畫在晶體閃爍的花崗岩柱上,沒有考究,但大膽估計是開幕年代留下至今。 走近宿舍一點,另有簇新的路標。讚賞設計,向原有建築的十字架雕空呼應致敬。 ricci hall is the oldest existing male-only dormitory in hong kong, quoting from hku alumni publication. it was established in 1929.  today ricci hall, the “student village”, consists of old and new wings. thankfully the old building is still around. i […]
