hkvibes : Old Hong Kong

Old Hong Kong

It can be kinda hard to get old pictures of Hong Kong. Tourist shops in Sheung Wan and elsewhere sell cheap photocopies (prices to be negotiated of course), but it’s more difficult to find real pictures from the last century. The picture above was taken in Sheung Wan and is the best shot I could get from my camera photographing an enlightened billboard in the middle of the night, just next to the Western Market. Still, it gives an idea of what Hong Kong could look like a few dozens of years ago.

And you, do you know any other old pictures of Hong Kong?
