Memories We Share: Hong Kong in the 1960s and 1970s
Kowloon, Hong Kong Museum of History


In the space of just two decades, Hong Kong’s population surged from 3.01 million in 1960 to 5.01 million in 1979. As urban development continued because of this post-war economic boom, new trends and practices emerged in Hong Kong’s way of life, social atmosphere and culture, which is showcased in this rich collection of photographs and video footage.

Progress in all aspects of life, including fashion, eating and dining, housing and transportation, laid the foundation for a more cosmopolitan way of life and collective identity in Hong Kong.
