An open-air rope-making ’factory’ set up in Fuk Sau Lane, Sai Ying Pun 西營盤福壽里露天打繩

製繩業一向是西區的重要工業,區內南北行的出入口業務,以及在附近上落貨的貨艇和躉船,均需要蔴繩作包裝及其他用途。Rope-making had long been an important industry in Western District, where rope was needed for packing by the Nam Pak Hong import-export businesses located in the area, and by cargo junks and lighters employed in the vicinity.
