In the 19th century, Sands Street in Kennedy Town served as a "slipway" for ships to go ashore for repairs and for new ships to be launched. Taking the old slipway as the theme, the staircase painting at Sands Street recreates the slipway and its surroundings in the old days. A mural painting on the side of the staircase showing the horizontal perspective of the slipway and a brief history of the site also allow visitors to learn more about the history of Sai Wan.
