Fly to Hong Kong via Japan Air Lines


Using the distinctive image of a Hong Kong policeman directing the traffic from his podium, this poster encourages visitors to come to Nathan Road in Kowloon, which in the 1960's was the very heart of the Hong Kong tourism industry with its international hotels and shopping. Today this poster feels very nostalgic with the old taxi and bus and neon signs.
