CAB – More photographs of Old Hong Kong and the Tales They Tell

26 Oct

cabLocal history enthusiast and founder of gwulo.com David Bellis is back to show another selection of old Hong Kong photographs from his collection. Most photos were taken around 1900-1930, and show a Hong Kong that has long since disappeared. They have been scanned at high-resolution and digitally restored, so David can zoom in to show us their hidden details, and tell us the stories behind them.

The photos and stories are grouped around three themes:
– Who / What / When / Where – how we uncover a photo’s secrets
– Piecing together a photo album’s story
– The view from the Peak – 100 years of change

Date: Wednesday 20th November 2013

Time: 7:00 pm

Location: Harold Smyth Room, St. John’s Cathedral, 4-8 Garden Rd, Central

Cost: $250 (including a glass of wine and refreshments)
