streetSNAP: The Funeral Street part 1

Ever wanted to buy kitchen ware? Go to Shanghai Street. What about toys? Go to Fuk Wing Street. Cheap electronic and camera accessories? Ap Liu Street. But what if you needed a coffin and funeral flower arrangements? The Lo Lung Hang Street in Hung Hom is the place with early 70 funeral homes! Hong Kong is great like that, whole areas are dedicated to a particular trade, product or service.

    The coffins are quite interesting looking, at least I think they were coffins.
