Revisit old Hong Kong through this book's collection of rare photos, many of them over 100 years old. Then join David to explore the photos' details, and so discover their hidden stories: the women who toiled up the Peak's slopes each day, carrying heavy loads of bricks and coal on their shoulders (p. 27), buried treasure still waiting to be found (p. 25), Kowloon's vanishing hills (p. 106), and many more.

David runs the award-winning local history website Gwulo, home to over 25,000 photos of old Hong Kong.
