Junk Harbour - Yaumatei


 


Next a short series of pictures from Yaumatei Typhoon Shelter.
This is long gone history now.
Where the junks and sampans are seen floating in the water on these pictures, - you will now find dry land -, and another historical location in Hong Kong has disappeared forever, - only living on in old photographs.
The characteristic apartment blocks you see on the last two pictures are still there, - but not right at the waterfront like when they were built.
There is, - however -, a new Yaumatei Typhoon Shelter, but now further out at sea, because the old shelter was being reclaimed for city development. This new typhoon shelter is now mainly filled by work- and cargo barges, and does not anymore serve as a floating city - - - -
Please enjoy!  :-)
