城皇街、永利街 Shing Wong Street, Wing Lee Street
資源庫


城皇街是條百年石梯路,名字源自附近已清拆的城隍廟。城皇街兩邊的社區昔日稱作「卅間」,有一列三十間的房屋建於開闢山坡而來的平台之上,居民會在屋前的公共空間聚會,鄰里關係因此非常緊密。

鄰近的永利街,因2010年在此取景的電影《歲月神偷》屢獲殊榮而聲名大噪。當時永利街保留了十二幢戰後唐樓和舊時代的生活風貌,吸引電影在此取景。永利街在1970年代時曾是小型印刷廠集中地,與鄰近街道一同見證香港印刷業的輝煌歲月。永利街現為保育區,但當中唐樓經過翻新後已失去昔日平民社區的氣息。

Named after the now demolished Shing Wong Temple in the neighbourhood, Shing Wong Street is a century-old street of stone steps constructed on a hill. A row of thirty houses was built along the street, forming a community known as the “Thirty Houses”. Closely connected with each other, the local residents here used to get together in the public space in front of the houses.
  
Wing Lee Street, a neighbouring street, was a major filming location for the award-winning film, Echoes of the Rainbow. Containing twelve post-war tenement buildings, the street drew wide attention after the movie was shot in 2010. The historic buildings were the reason for the filming to take place there, as they represented the way of living in the past. Home to many printing houses in the 1970s, Wing Lee Street and the neighbourhood witnessed the heyday of Hong Kong’s printing industry. Placed under conservation by the government, some of the tenement buildings on the street have been renovated. The restored buildings are, however, considered to have lost the distinctive qualities that characterised the place as a grassroot community.
