Flashbacks of Two Decades in Hong Kong - A Collection of Hong Kong Aerial Photos is available for sale
A new aerial photo collection Flashbacks of Two Decades in Hong Kong - A Collection of Hong Kong Aerial Photos is now available for sale.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the Survey and Mapping Office (SMO) of the Lands Department (LandsD) has published a new edition of aerial photo collection, Flashbacks of Two Decades in Hong Kong, to showcase major changes of the city over the last two decades through a display of the aerial photos taken by the LandsD at different times.
The new edition of aerial photo collection carries five feature themes: planning and infrastructure, transport, public housing, leisure and culture, and nature conservation. The first four feature themes display a total of 44 sets of aerial photos to demonstrate the present and past faces of buildings and land features. The last feature theme on nature conservation is an embellishment to let readers escape from the bustling city life to the green Hong Kong where the city oasis is located.
The 166-page Flashbacks of Two Decades in Hong Kong, priced at $170, is available at all sales outlets of the SMO, six post offices (General Post Office, Kowloon Central Post Office, Tsim Sha Tsui Post Office, Mong Kok Post Office, Kwun Tong Post Office and Tuen Mun Central Post Office), certain local bookstores and the SMO's online map shop. Information on the SMO's sales outlets is available at "Map Sales Outlets". For enquiries, please call 2231 3187.
