Regulations of Public Vehicles and Chairs in Hong Kong 1863-1941

Submitted by Klaus on Fri, 04/08/2022 - 22:20


The population of Hong Kong in the early 1840s was about 6,000 people, increasing to 125,000 in 1865 (about 2,000 were Americans and Europeans) (source).

Increasing numbers of inhabitants lead to increasing traffic on the roads. As the “Colony of Hongkong and its Dependencies” was a civilized area and had a tendency to set rules for every aspect of life, there obviously was the need for a regulation.
