The fading old Wan Chai 退色的舊灣仔

The fading old Wan Chai

Between Queen's Road and the tramway of Johnston Road are the old residential blocks built before the starting of the WW2, and streets that preserve many local cultures and characteristics carried down from the past. All that has changed since the starting of the re-development project.

Must re-development always be tearing everything down to the ground before start building anything?

The four 80-year-old detached buildings at Johnston Road, including the Wo Cheung Pawnshop, were "Lucky enough" to be choosen as the ones to be preserved. The surroundings ones were not so lucky, now all disappeared.
