Special thanks to

Moonchu Foundation for its consent to the use of the historical photos

1 April 2015 – 1 June 2015

Spanning six decades, the 10 historical photos on display depict important moments from Hong Kong’s past that provide a valuable reminder of the way things were during the early years of the territory’s development. By a click of the shutter, each image reflects a conscious attempt to capture a memorable moment. Illustrating the emergence of a new era in Hong Kong, the photos bear witness to the birth and growth of the city and allow us to revisit the hustle and bustle of old Hong Kong, the cultural clash between East and West, and the transformation of lifestyles in both urban and rural areas. Hong Kong would not have developed into the city it is today if any one of these images were missing from its timeline.
