1966 HONG KONG

Hong Kong ... the name itself conjures up images of intrigue, romance and history. All of these photos were taken in 1966. For those of you who now live, or who have lived, in HK, this gallery may be of interest to you. The 40+ years that have passed since I took these have also dimmed my memory as to what some of the subject matter is. If you can fill me in on the details, I'd appreciate it.

Some of the photos are of The Tiger Balm Gardens which, sorry to say, are gone. Tiger Balm was an all purpose remedy and the company built and financed the Gardens which were located on the bluffs of Victoria Peak, overlooking the harbor and Kowloon.

Please accept my apologies for the quality of the photos as slides tend to fade over time and scanning is an imprecise science.
