Collective Memories 集體回憶

Collective Memories 集體回憶

Hong Kong, once a small fishing village, to being now one of the world’s main international financial centers. The city has transformed & advanced many-fold to what is now a dynamic metropolis, transcending through hardship, crisis and mediocre.

For a city to rise to become the freest economy in the world (for 13 consecutive years), many stories have emerged & inspired the local people to fulfill their potential & achieve the success in their land of opportunity.

This thread will contain the sights & sounds of Hong Kong through the developing eras, and is a tribute & testimony to the strength of the Hong Kong spirit and its endurance through the years. The daily things that HK-ers grew up with & integrated into their lifestyle will be displayed here – the music, the adverts … - the taste of HK life.

This thread is also an example of the teamwork between HK-ers, no matter where they are in the world, Hong Kong is a place that bonds and forms a special connection with people. It’s vibrancy gravitates those that have their life’s touched by this special city.

Lovely collection. There are so many new historic pictures I have never seen before.
But surprised how many pictures I can recognize the locations.

I love this one. For decades, the construction method is still the same -- bamboo frame.

Only froth and fifth from the bottom are.

The other 3 are taken after different incident/disaster.

The new colour set really shows the different lifestyle or settings for HK decades ago. You get the fishing village, city life and the agriculture side.

The building on the left hand side is still there... isn't it? I think I recognize it.

Visible from Hennessy Road...?

It's still here, but that should be located somewhere in Kowloon City.

This one doesn't look like to be the one in Wan Chai since you don't see the harbour in the picture.

But there is one of that looks alike pawn shop in Wan Chai at the northwest corner Lockhart Road and Fleming Road intersection.

Maybe that is the pawn chain stores back then.

Actually, the pawn shop was on the junction of the South Wall Road (You may view the street name plate clearly in the larger photo) and Nga Tsin Wai Road in Kowloon City. This GZ style pawn shop building had been already torn for decades.
