Inhaltsangabe: Through excerpts from the earliest English language newspapers in Hong Kong, accompanied by Solomon Bard's insightful comments, Voices from the Past provides unique glimpses into Hong Kong's past. Richly illustrated with interesting photographs, chiefly from the Hong Kong Museum of History's photographic library, the pages bring Hong Kong's colonial history vividly to life. The newspaper excerpts, in chronological order, are faithful to the original text, reproducing its quaint prose and spelling, and even occasional errors. Focusing mainly on Hong Kong, the excerpts also touch on Macao, mainland China and the rest of the world. They are selected in a contrasting way: instructive and entertaining, serious and amusing, important and trivial, but always interesting. They reflect the changes over the years in language, style of writing, even in humour. Of special interest are the public responses to the many inventions, which today we take for granted, such as electric lighting, the motor car, or the first attempts at flying. Most importantly, they reveal the gradual changes in Hong Kong's colonial attitudes as these slowly adjust to the new contemporary values and social and political changes.

Über den Autor: Solomon Bard was the director of the student health service of the University of Hong Kong from 1956 to 1976. He then served as the Executive Secretary of the Government Antiquities & Monuments Office from 1976 to 1983. With strong interest in music and archaeology, he was once the conductor (and later concertmaster) of the Hong Kong Philharmonic, and the founder-member of the Hong Kong Archaeological Society
