How it looked in the 1960s. It used to be a lot of fun crossing gloucester road in the 60s. In 1970, they started to widen the gloucester road and essentially doubled the width. They put a barrier in between and also fences to stop people getting off the sidewalks. They built the pedestrian bridge in front of Luk Kok hotel. All these things can be seen in your photo.
