Sunset Industries - Lindsay Varty 香港夕陽產業導賞

A traditional pawn shop. An octogenarian letter writer sat with his 50 year old typewriter. Stacks upon stacks of hand-hammered copper pots and wooden hammers. Based on her book Sunset Survivors, local author Lindsay Varty’s walking tour provides an insider’s look at the twilight industries of Hong Kong. The tour explores the Yau Ma Tei, one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Hong Kong. Fascinating and nostalgic, guests will leave the tour with new insights into Hong Kong’s culture and history.

一間傳統當鋪、一位年過八十的寫信人、一部經歷半個世紀的打字機、一個又一個疊在一起的錘子。香港本地作家、《夕陽餘暉》作者華蓮絲將帶大家探索香港其中一個最早發展的街區——油麻地,並以圈內人的角度向大家介紹香港的夕陽產業。這個新奇又懷舊的導賞團將為參加者對香港文化和歷史帶來新的理解。
