Visualizing the Past: The Hong Kong Photography Collection

Currently, this collection has over 100 sets of photos and around 3,000 images . It covers a broad range of iconic buildings, religious architecture, districts, and even festival events to preserve the memories of the city in the 90s. These photos were taken by the Library between 1988 and 1998 in the format of slide film with much more vibrant colours.  Users can access the photos anytime and anywhere, and discover relevant information for their study and research via the Digital Collections Portal.
