September 23, 2016

During the day this mass of shabby market stalls looks utterly dead. It seems impossible that these old market booths, alleyways and parking bays could be the hub of a thriving exercise in commercial efficiency.

Collector Cheng Po-hung owns a shop that sells old currency and post cards at Sheung Wan. He’s known as a folk expert of Hong Kong history and regularly appears on TV programmes to explain old local stories.

“A four-floor building only cost about 1,000 Hong Kong dollars in Tai Kok Tsui 100 years ago,” he said. Through his coins, he takes us back to the old days of Hong Kong to explore the stories behind them. (Photo: Thomas Yau)
