Sheung Wan

on July 29, 2013

postcards_2This pretty card comes from Zoie in Hong Kong and she tells me it shows Sheung Wan in the 1950s/60s. Apparently it is one of the richest places in Hong Kong now and is full of tourists, but she says that luckily it has kept its historical buildings intact. The card itself is painted by Shum-Ping who she says is a famous Chinese artist. Beautiful.
