Fly Pan American to Hong Kong


Another double size travel poster from Pan Am. The poster is dated 1965 but the photograph, which was taken on the hillside above Mount Butler Path, was taken in 1959 or 1960, identifiable from the buildings in Central district. This highly detailed image, shot in large format, gives an excellent overview of the Causeway Bay and Wanchai districts before they were extensively redeveloped in the 1960’s and 1970’s.
