HONG KONG: THEN AND NOW. Grylls Vaughan. Pavilion Books Company Ltd., London, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Trafalgar Square Publishing, North Pomfret. 144 pp. 24 x 27 cm. ISBN 9781910904084 In English.
Publisher's description: Hong Kong was first captured on camera when the British arrived to lay claim to its "fragrant harbour" in 1841. Its fascinating history has been documented through photography ever since -- from its rapid expansion as a Crown Colony to its handover to China in 1997 and its present status as one of the world's leading international financial centers. Pairing rare and previously unpublished photographs with contemporary views taken from the same location, Hong Kong: Then and Now highlights the rich and varied history of this constantly evolving metropolis, from Victoria Harbour, the Hong Kong Club, and the Star Ferry to Kowloon Walled CIty, Chek Lap Kok Airport, and the gleaming skyscrapers of its central banking district. Sites include: Victoria Harbour, the Peak, the Star Ferry Pier, Man Ho Temple, Ladder Street, Queen's Road Central, Hong Kong Club, Prince's Building, HSBC, Noonday Gun, Happy Valley Racecourse, Tiger Balm Garden, Peninsula Hotel, Kai Tak Airport, Kowloon Walled City, Shenzhen, Repulse Bay, Chek Lap Kok Airport, and St. Paul's (Macau). Rare archival photographs of Hong Kong have been carefully matched with specially commissioned color photos to reveal the past and present of this fascinating city.
