Tuesday, January 1, 1946


found a wonderful resource of high-res photos of Hong Kong on the Life web site.

Here's the statue of Queen Victoria looking the worse for wear with arm broken off.


There's a lot of spectacular photos on here; you need to be inventive with tags to find them

The stone pedestal which formerly housed Queen Victoria was removed in January 1949. The stone pedestal was not re-erected. The stones were used for other building projects!
