the rich, the grass-roots and the forgotten?

Really nice contrast between the matt, slightly faded colours of the buildings and the shiny brash colours of the modern cars!

Thanks Ian. When I was a small boy, I could find this kind of "Tong Lau" (Chinese style tenement houses) on almost every street. But they have become so rare now that this "Green House" was actually listed as a 'Historic Building'. However, despite being listed, the fate of these 10 houses (and the residents) remains very much uncertain... Another similar Historic Building in the same Wanchai District is the "Blue House". (See my next post.)

Best regards,
