"Honk Hong came to this awareness late, but now pursues a policy of preserving the best from the past wherever possible. Through its Museum of History, the Urban Council focuses on the territory's rich past. Dr. Solomon Bard, the author of this book is a long time resident of Hong Kong who has pursued research in these fields for many years: there an be few in Hong Kong who can match his enthusiasm for Hong Kong's past. This has been enhanced by the years spent in the service of the Government as the first head of the Antiquities and Monuments Office. Into this book he has gathered the fruits of his investigations. Its scope is wide and illustrated with photographs and maps. The extensive information in its pages will lead the reader by many unfamiliar paths to unexpected treats, and provide the reader with a fresh view of what Hong Kong still has to offer." excert from the foreword by H.M.G Frosgate, CBE, JP, Chairman of the Urban Council, January, 1988.
