Hong Kong - fly there on Northwest Orient

It would be a rare sight today for tourist visitors to find an elderly Hakka farmer in Hong Kong; but on taking a tour of the New Territories in the 1970’s, around the time this poster was issued, one would find long established rural communities with paddy fields and duck farmers. This is a small format poster with less used design iconography.
