Thanks to everyone who shared these photos with us. If you can add any more, please go ahead and upload them to Gwulo (here's how) and I'll add them in to this page. It would be great to see views along the tram line before Sheung Wan and after Tin Hau.

If you enjoyed these, you can also go back in time to take a tram ride in the 1930s, or the 1950s. Or if you'd like more photos of Hong Kong in the 1960s, I recommend you take a look at Mike Cussans's photos.

Regards, David

Three years ago you posted on the Tram Ride in the 1950s page an embedded Youtube video about a tram ride in 1967.  It looks like you need to post that here too.


Thanks Breskvar, I'd forgotten that one. Here it is again:
