The section in Sham Shui Po is historically the camp of British Army, where once a detention camp for prisoners of war during Japanese Occupation of Hong Kong. The Sham Shui Po Police Station at the junction of Yen Chow Street is also historical.
The historical 4-storey building Lui Seng Chun (雷生春) is on 119 Lai Chi Kok Road. It has been restored by the Government of Hong Kong and will likely feature a traditional Chinese tea house when it re-opens. The road once hosted shipyards, fish, meat and vegetable wholesale markets, which were moved closer to the coast after extensive reclamation.
