Ode to the grindstone

Hong Kong's abandoned villages allow visitors a more poignant glimpse into life in the past than any heritage museum. Here are two obsolete grindstones (near Kam Tin and Tai O) that must have been the starting point for many bygone cakes and buns.

They are now all out of flour power (apologies).

Another feature of abandoned villages.
