New Exhibition of HK maps & photos @ HKUST, 18 Jun – 2 Oct, 2019

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology are showing a selection of old photos and maps of Hong Kong. Many of the photos appeared in the recent Steps Through Time exhibition I prepared for The Pottinger Hotel, so this is a second chance to see them. The exhibition also shows historic maps from the HKUST Library Special Collections, and from local private collections.

Here's the HKUST introduction to the exhibition:
