PCAD a Postcard a Day: Hongkong

This is a card, sent by Debbie from HongKong, that I received last week. It shows the view of Des Voeux Road in the past. Debbie writes that (understandably) the road has changed a lot since the photo was taken.

On the card it says: ‘Colonial double-decker trams presented a convenient way to hop for shopping on Des Voeux Road where it was a mecca for shoppers.’

The stamp pictures a beautiful rock formation on the island Ping Chau (Hongkong territory). 

It’s called Kang Lau Shek. Wikipedia says: “At the island's southeastern end are two large rocks known as the Drum Rocks, or Watchman's Tower Rocks (更樓石, Kang Lau Shek).

That’s my contribution for today.

Have a good day and see you tomorrow,

  1. Lovely share, Lisca, thanks for showing the photo and stamp with history ... It's lovely to see old shots and am sure it has been built all around several times since that image, Shaz in Oz.x
