Item description for Voices from the Past: Hong Kong 1842-1918 by Solomon Bard...

Through excerpts from the earliest English language newspapers in Hong Kong, Voices from the Past provides unique glimpses into Hong Kongs history. Richly illustrated with interesting photographs, the pages bring Hong Kongs colonial past vividly to life.

The newspaper excerpts, in chronological order, are faithful to the original text. Focusing mainly on Hong Kong, the excerpts also touch on Macao, mainland China, and other parts of the world. They are selected for their contrasting content: instructive and entertaining, serious and amusing, important and trivial, but always interesting. They reflect the changes over the years in language, style of writing, even in humor. Of special interest are the public responses to the many inventions, which today we take for granted, such as electric lighting, the motor car, or the first attempts at flying. Most importantly, they reveal the gradual changes in Hong Kongs colonial attitudes as these slowly adjust to new values and social and political changes.
