(8 December 2013) To escape the hustle and bustle of the city, slip into its past, at the “Images Through Time: Photos of Old Hong Kong” exhibition at the Hong Kong Museum of History. More than 700 photos from the mid-19th century present a true reflection of the city’s early days of development.
The largest such photo exhibition the museum has ever organised comprises photos from its own collection, the Information Services Department – and a generous loan from the Moonchu Foundation which recently purchased old photos from the United Kingdom.
The museum’s chief curator Susanna Siu told news.gov.hk that staff spent days painstakingly selecting the 700 from more than 35,000 available photographs.
The illustrated announcement is here.
