Causeway Bay and Wanchai before the harbour reclaimation:

Causeway Bay is the early years:

Central and Western District:

Happy Valley Race Course

Harbour Pier

Colonial buildings along the harbour

Queen's Road

Des Voeux Road

Chater Road

The Mid-Levels

Trams still in service today

The Hong Kong Cricket and Parade Grounds

Statue Square

Other Buildings of Note

It's a sin that this one is gone

The Western District: Hong Kong's Chinatown

The Kowloon-Canton Railway Terminal building

Kowloon Walled City

It's a shame our post office was torn down.
That's in HK back in the 70s and 80s. Heritage wasn't an issue. Anything obstructed new developments were torn down, not just the post office, but the old Hong Kong Club and old HSBC as well. Everything in that area was full of European architecture back then.

That's the sad side; but without doing that, it would not have the HK now. Things change some times although I am against the demolition of Star Ferry and Queen's Pier today.
