1/ “Great scenery along the way: Exhibition of street scenes at bus stops on Hong Kong Island in the 1970s” Roving Exhibition

Date: 2017/10/19 (Thursday) to 2017/10/24 (Tuesday)
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Venue: Hong Kong Central Library (Exhibition Gallery 1)
Description: In the 1970s, bus was a major mode of transport. Different bus routes travelled from point to point and reached various parts of the city, forming a road transport network. The Traffic and Transport Survey Division of the then Public Works Department once conducted a survey on bus stop locations, passenger volume, journey speed and journey time, etc., of each bus route and took photographs of the bus stops along each route. A series of technical reports compiled subsequently were used to assess the quality of bus services on Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories. Photographs in these reports not only marked the locations of the bus stops, they also documented nearby buildings, streetscapes and people's everyday life. The distinctive scenes of each bus stop made up a collage of the cityscape and kept an account of the city's life back in the 70s of the last century. These reports, filed in Hong Kong Record Series 1015, are valuable information for the study of Hong Kong's transport development and changes of our cityscape.
