Eye on Hong Kong

To mark our 10th anniversary, the Hong Kong Heritage Project is proud to present a collection of previously unpublished photographs depicting Hong Kong life in the 1950s taken by Lord Lawrence Kadoorie. 

The photographs capture daily lives, changing landscapes and rapid social and economic development. Taken together they offer a remarkable view of the tremendous efforts made by our citizens in rebuilding Hong Kong after the Second World War, reshaping its economy and bettering their lives.
