Hi everyone! A few questions. How would someone travel from Canton to Hong Kong in the late 50s-early 60s? Which ports in Canton and HK would have been used? My grandma moved to HK in 1961 aged 20. She worked as an accountant at a factory that made leather gloves - any ideas of where abouts this factory would have been?
Also, does anyone have any pictures/experience of living in an apartment at that time, and what were they like? I know most people here are probably white middle class, but I am interested in seeing apartments that the Chinese would have lived in. <Read more ...>
This website is great! I grew up in Hong Kong and have lived in Mansfield Road over the 1990s. Wondering are there any photos or photos anyone has taken of the Peak area Guildford road to Mansfield road during 1960s onwards? It is a very peaceful area and I have revisited it after moving to California. There is even a football team that plays in the park every now and then... my eldest son's childhood was that park took him there almost each day and was nice chatting to parents. Am interested in having a look at what it was during that era. <Read more ...>
