北河街T字路牌 pei ho street t-shaped road sign

20170926 | pei ho street 北河街 按《香港地方》網頁,T型路牌歷史追溯至1961年前。而此形狀的路牌當中物料、中英文順序而細分, 北河街這兩個老牌,如按上述年份計算,就起碼超過五十歲。兩皆鐵造有框,一個生銹字體模糊了,另一個則有幸保留光鮮。 according to a chinese website about hong kong, t-shaped street signs dated back before 1961. there is differentiation under the big t, some are made from stone, others in metal, and the sequence of chinese and english are not the same too. these two over 50-year old signs […]

永康街唐樓 walk-ups on wing hong street

2017.4.7 | 永康街與福華街 wing hong street crosses fuk wa street 說永康街,愛旅遊的香港人可能首先想起台灣的同名街道。香港這條街位於長沙灣。 說福華街,大家比較熟悉深水埗那段,原來這條街一直伸展到長沙灣來。 沒有找到有關這幾棟樓的資料,於是決定這篇一破本部落的平日格式,展示幾張而非限於一張照片。主要因為覺得這幾棟樓雖然年邁,特別看樓上有些鐵框玻璃很老舊,但總的感覺是健壯。尤其向永康街一邊,最愛那些後樓梯構成的幾何畫面;還有,樓下車房,非常唐樓的風光,但這種非常有味道的風光已經買少見少。 this is one old stretch in cheung sha wan. it was the first time i came around this side on kowloon peninsula. the view is typical tang lau old hood. low-rise old buildings with street level space occupied by garage and car […]

福華街 - 舊式路牌 an old and hidden street sign of fuk wa street

2016.5.19 | 青山道-福華街  castle peak road crosses fuk wa street 很喜歡行街,指的是走在街上,慢慢欣賞建築、商舖、民情。 近日發掘一條「新」路線 – 青山道。自己是香港島人,未正式認真走過青山道時,不知道原來這條街道很長。而且跟其他九龍的大道(如彌敦道、廣東道、上海街等)有點不同的是,青山道有大彎位,並非一條直路。 本部落陸續會貼文這條路的見聞。先由本文開始。 青山道沿路開始見到拆樓或新建多層大廈,但主要還是老舊的唐樓,愛香港舊建築的這條路是大寶藏。如這裡。 居住或運用這些樓房的環境大概是艱苦的,看這裏的窗破了,沒有修補。但我這路人看著,會注視美麗的建築弧形,大型的騎樓天花,有點剝落的生鐵長形窗戶。還有,當樓宇維修時,給油漆矇了面目的舊式路牌。 路牌是T字型,上英下中,中文由右至左,文字在外框內。歷史可能追溯至五十年代。 walking and touring is definitely one good way to explore hong kong, not only for tourist but highly recommend to every hongkongers. lately i discover a ‘new’ route on the kowloon side. i stil cannot get enough […]
