Inhaltsangabe: The passing years leave few traces on the face of Hong Kong.
Without the surviving photographic record-much of it recaptured in the pages of this splendidly illustrated volume-there would be little to remind us of the very different Hong Kong which served as prelude to the city that has taken its place.
There, in an unlikely setting of quiet streets and shaded verandahs, of elegant mansions and grandly arcaded offices, the seeds were planted for the boundless ambitions that would-in good time-transform this mercantile community from a coastal backwater into one of the paragons of Asia.
Über den Autor: Peter Moss was born in the shadow of the Raj and has witnessed the protracted demise of Empire through half a century-Indiain 1947, Malaya in 1957 and Hong Kong in 1997. His home since 1965, Hong Kong has been the subject of his other contributions to the FormAsia range of publications, including Hongkong Handover, Hong Kong Style and Skylines: Hong Kong.
