Old Kai Tack in transit

While dipping into the archives yesterday, we came across a short piece written in 1933, describing a new and highly desirable residential area: Kai Tack Bund.

New residents there swore that ''they could not hope to find a more delightful place to live in''.

''One gets all the fresh air one desires in Kai Tack,'' the writer continued.

How things have changed.
