What the Central and Western District impresses people the most is probably how the British government established its administrative and military centre in the district after Hong Kong became a British colony, but how was the situation of the basic necessities like "food" and "shelter" of residents in the district? This talk introduces the historic buildings related to "food" and "shelter" in the Central and Western District during the colonial period, thereby giving participants a picture of the planning of the district in the early years.

Talk conducted in Cantonese. Limited seat. Free admission by phone at 2921 2555 from 28.4.2018 (Saturday).
