Buried treasure!

The house on the hilltop in this c.1929 photo was demolished by the Japanese during their occupation of Hong Kong in the 1940s. They buried a valuable historic relic at the site, and it is believed to still be there today!

Detail cropped from page 22 of the new Volume 4 of 'Old Hong Kong Photos and The Tales They Tell'. The book will be available in November 2020.
