Hong Kong, the Riviera of the Orient

This is the earliest known Hong Kong travel poster, and it sets the mood with an evocative night view across the harbour to Central and The Peak. Several of the symbols of Hong Kong we find repeatedly through the collection are seen here at the outset - in particular the Chinese sailing junk on Victoria Harbour
