Central Police Station located at the eastern end of Hollywood Road, in Central, Hong Kong, is awaiting development following its decommissioning. Built between 1864-1919, the Central Police Station is one of the last physical reminders of Hong Kong's colonial heritage With its long history and antiquated architectural style.
The police station and prison are now open to the public for 2 weeks with exciting art & design exhibition and thereafter waiting for redevelopment.
It was fun sketching in the old prison. Each tiny cell still has a double decked bed. Not very much space to move around. No wonder people go crazy and turns violence in such a small environment.

Spent my saturday afternoon visiting the very quaint Cheung Chau island south west of HK island. Fishing is still one of the main livelihood of the islanders. Here there are no cars but just bicycles & tricycles for getting around. Life feels generally slower too. I like the fresh air too.
