These photos show what Hong Kong's most famous sites looked like more than 100 years ago

What did Hong Kong look like a century ago?

HotelClub, an online community for travellers, set out to answer this question using Google Street View and the help of historian Mark Footer.

They created an interactive tool that lets you see what some of Hong Kong’s most popular sites looked like as far back as 100 years ago, compared to how they appear today. You can explore the Western Market as it was in 1947, ride through the bustling Kennedy Town in 1957, and see what Nathan Road looked like in 1920.

To see the photos, click “Explore” on the graphic below. Click on each site to see how it appeared decades ago. Once you get past the first row of photos, keep scrolling to see the rest.
