1933-34: Photos from Warren Swire's sixth visit to Hong Kong

Submitted by David on Wed, 09/29/2021 - 21:00

It's three years to the day since I last wrote about Warren Swire's photos, so we're long overdue for another instalment. This batch of photos come from his visit to Hong Kong in 1933-34. He was keeping to his usual schedule of a visit every 4-5 years, having last visited in 1928-29, and was also keeping to his usual themes for the photos he took.
