This poster, which was also issued by the Hong Kong Travel Association and designed by Panaiotaky, encourages visitors to come to Hong Kong so they can ride a sedan chair to The Peak for the wonderful views. Sedan chairs were a popular mode of transport in 19th and early 20th century Hong Kong and many wealthy Peak residents retained a team of coolies to carry them up the steep hills. By the time this poster was issued, licensed sedan chair numbers were declining as motorised transport became more popular.
