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.
