Golden Age Tour( Part 4)

I was introduce the street again, Ladder Street. The movie director was prefer shooting in there. Why? Because it was memorable. This is nearby Hollywood street at the concer. The Tung wah Hospial is the old weatern hospital and some funeral service in the area. The streets is located in Soho and Central. The street included a tree-lined, 350-metre path from Caine Road to Queen’s Road Central. You will find the traditional and residential building, related black and dirty wall.

Near by the street, you will see the worship hourse and 162 year-old Man Mo Temple. Man Mo Temple is the old and hertitage building, is built in 1847.It is dedicated to the civil god Man Cheong and the martial god Kwan Ti Lit Shing Kung is the worship of all heavenly gods. Kung So was an assembly hall where community affairs and disputes were settled.

Someone said the story, they said in 100 years ago, coolies died were rested here for funeral services before they were carried back to home country. It is terrible. Also, people said that it is “ long-living shop” and "four-and-a-half-piece”, mean is the number of pieces of wood used to make a coffin.
