The wall on the right is the dominant feature of this picture. Almost all of the H Housing homes were identical.
Based upon where we lived, my thoughts went to how the sanitary sewer lines were connected as well as the water pressure and source.
All houses in the H Housing area look like this one. What is surprising is that the roofs were mainly flat which indicates a continued effort at maintenance.

Follow the two lines of the same color, and you will see how these houses look today and how they appeared about 50 years ago.
Check the wall on the right with the picture above it and the two photos match up pretty well. The angle of the picture is everything.
For me, this is the first house to the left after entering JianYe Road.
The home circled in yellow is the location of the third photo shown on this post. The house circled in blue is the one next to the guard house in the first picture.
