Amazing images of Aberdeen, Hong Kong from the early 1970's

My good friend Roger Clark recently sent me the images below of Aberdeen Harbour, Hong Kong from the early 1970's - Roger was here on holiday with his Mum. Amazing!

Aberdeen on Hong Kong Island has changed dramatically since the early 1970's - these images show what it was like and I remember it like this as I arrived here in 1972... today all the old fishing boats and junks have gone to be replaced by fancy speedboats and yachts, luxury apartments are being built, the MTR is coming to Aberdeen and yet the monstrosity that is the Jumbo Floating Restaurant still dominates Aberdeen Harbour.

Roger, thank you for sharing your images

I do private walking tours around Hong Kong, I am on the streets every day and I have a somewhat interesting perspective of this wonderful city I have called my home for 39 years. My private walking tours are perfect for visitors who want a detailed overview of Hong Kong prior to exploring on their own and for people who are only here for a day or two who want to make the most of their limited time here.

Many clients book me for their first full day in Hong Kong, they get to see the best that Hong Kong has to offer + a crash course on our wonderful public transport system and then they go exploring for the rest of their stay armed with step by step instructions and recommendations from me....

I am available at very short notice, I get many last minute bookings and may well be available even if you arrive in Hong Kong without making plans! so please check my calendar, simply send me a message for a prompt reply.

I also offer a candid and very personal view of what it is like to live in Hong Kong for 4 decades.

...oh, and if you book a tour then you are booking a tour with me, I do not employ other guides, so explore this great city with one of the best tour guides in Hong Kong.

All images taken with a Sony RX 1r camera - it produces amazing images!
