Hong Kong Old and New

Everyone has seen twilight shots of Hong Kong harbour from the Peak: the millions of twinkling lights in that busy harbour never fail to fascinate. This image is a little different, combining as it does the harbour with a piece of colonial history in the foreground – the Barker Road Peak Tram stop, the final stop on the funicular tramway before reaching the Peak Tower. For those with a keen eye to Hong Kong’s ever-changing panorama, this image was taken in June 2002.
