Theme
The Urban Spaces of Hong Kong: Historical Inscriptions

Living in a city like Hong Kong provides us with many collective memories of some remarkable people, places and things. Many historical landmarks still exists in urban spaces, including remnants of those already vanished and those that are part of the vanishing heritage. These include streets, markets, attractions, shops or a group of buildings in certain areas. The urban landscape allows us to witness the change and continuity of the history as well as our cultural heritage.
