Another re-visit on Lantau Island in the fishing village of Tai O. Still not too sure what this compound and couple of buildings were used for. They sit right next to the seaside near the pier by the former Police Station. I think they may be something to do with water supply. The buildings have been abandoned for some time and have no clues to hint what their former usage may have been. Nothing epic architecturally - just fascinating how nature has tried to claw it back.

Nothing much but still an interest. The defunct outboard motor. The window frames have a nice design and picture 2 is not a Belfast sink.

That's how I felt about this place. Those window frames crop up a lot in HK - love the slight kink in the middle horizontal bar.
