Junk Harbour - Causeway Bay

There is still a typhoon shelter in Causeway Bay, but the sight and life you could enjoy there in the seventies has long gone.  There are still boats in the Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter, but not so many, - and by far the most of them are modern pleasure boats.

Here a view over the Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter, where a large assembly of junks used to be permanently moored. Of course this common sight from the seventies are long gone and the "Boat People" are settled ashore -
Across the Victoria Harbour you can see the buildings of the Tsimshatsui water front on the Kowloon peninsula. Photographed on Nov. 2. 1977.
