The shop lot behind Standard Charted Bank in Old Town has been demolished for long time. This vacant piece of land was chosen by a French film maker somewhere in 1990 for a movie narrating story in Vietnam during the colonial period. However, I can’t remember what the movie was. The site was chosen as hotel where a temporary wooden structure was built to match the surrounding Standard Charted Bank & Mercantile Bank (currently Elken) building. It was brought down right after the film shooting. This place is still vacant without any new building arising. The cracks & holes between bricks are growing small tree & even become pigeon nest.
