Index updated – can you help the Group?

Hugh Farmer: The lifeblood of this Group and its website are contributions. We have had over 120 people contributing in some way. Why not join them?

If you would like to write on a new subject, add information/images about an existing one, or simply add a comment at the end of an article it would be great to hear from you.

Or if you find photographs or other images of HK’s Industrial past that we haven’t yet mentioned.

Or if you can take your own pictures of places of interest that remain.

Feel free to contact me:-  indhhk “at”gmail dot com

We occasionally need brief translations of Chinese into English. Can you help?
