Coastal Tramlines 濱海電車路

Standard

A superb angle capturing the tram encircled by the barges and row of lorries — The vanished coastal tramline at Kennedy Town Praya recalls me most. You can hear the frequent “ding ding” sounds but the workers often neglect the sounds, rushing to load their goods on the tramlines and quickly remove them before trams passed by1. (T.V. Runnacles)

昔日緊貼著電車軌的堅尼地城海旁,電車被躉船和沿岸一排排貨車包圍著的畫面,仍縈繞在我的腦海。岸邊的工人要和電車鬥快,無瑕理會「叮叮」聲,爭分奪秒地越過路軌來運貨。

Such area has been reclaimed today in place of a park and new launched swimming pool, and the memorable moments will probably be lost forever.

如今這塊地已填海了,換成了供人休憩的公園和新建成的游泳池,經典的畫面亦不再。

  1. Amazing Coastal Tramlines! Never think of there is beautiful coastline just in front of the tramlines! So sad, can never see it`s beautiful again…
