Description


How was Hong Kong perceived and described by writers from the 1950s during the last colonial period? Was it a British city or was it Chinese?
The writers show how different life was for ex-pats ensconced on the Peak and leading a glitzy lifestyle compared to refugees who came pouring into the colony from mainland China and lived in dire poverty in squatter camps.
Find out if that East and West ever mingled in My Hong Kong.
