High-speed Rail

Recognize this place?  The construction site in front, that is.   A piece of it (the waterfront piece) will become a part of the West Kowloon Cultural District.  The rest will become the West Kowloon Terminal for the High-Speed Rail linking Hong Kong with the High-Speed Rail system of the mainland.  In a few years it will be totally un-recognizable.  This photograph will be an interesting record for history buffs. 

By the way, 20 years ago the whole site did not exist.  It was part of the Victoria Harbour.  The buildings to the left marked the then waterfront (more-or-less).
