Shanghai Street, an old street in Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon, was a prosperous area as early as the mid-19th century. Today, we can still find a number of old shops which have served the neighborhood for over 40 years and the shop owners keep on running their business in a down-to-earth manner. Although traditional craftsmanship is on the brink of extinction due to the lack of successors, these shop owners are facing the challenges with optimism. What do you see and how do you feel when you enter an old shop on Shanghai Street?

Talk conducted in Cantonese. Limited seat. Free admission by phone at 2928 4055 from 7.7.2018 (Saturday).
