1. The History
Not too much history about on this place. The factory belonged to Mayar Silk, a premier Shanghai-based silk manufacturer, which first formed in Shanghai back in 1917. Tsai Shengbai was appointed General Manager of Mayar Silk Mills in 1937 and in 1956 he was sent to Mayar's factory in Hong Kong. Other than that there appears to be no information on this place or the plans for its future. It's been abandoned for at least 20 years and occupies extremely valuable real estate land in down-town Tsuen Wan.

2. The Explore
Bit of an afterthought this one as I'd taken all the pictures on my phone and forgotten about it. Been watching this place for the 20 years I've been going to Hong Kong for now. It's always been sealed. This time I even saw what appeared to be a live-in guard within the complex. So like last time it's just externals. Shame but this building has enough external merits to justify a report still.
