Beautiful Photographs of Hong Kong in 1975 by a 20-year-old Canadian Guy

Hong Kong in the 1970s underwent many changes that shaped its future, led for most of the decade by its longest-serving and reform-minded Governor, Murray MacLehose. Economically, it reinvented itself from a manufacturing base into a financial centre.

20-year-old Canadian traveler Blake Smith took these beautiful photos of Hong Kong when he visited in December 1975.
