1960’s Hong Kong

Last month, my daughter Isla spent a few days scanning old photographs so that we could store them on computer. These included pictures from an old album that came from Hong Kong, with black and white pictures that were taken in the 1960s.

Most of these old photographs were taken using a little box camera and are not very good but I love them for their nostalgic air of a bygone age.

While I probably took some of the landscape photographs, I do not know the origin, or the subjects of many of the others.

My favourite picture of all is an old wedding shot showing the bride surrounded by her female relatives and friends, where everyone is aiming for 1960’s high fashion, Hong Kong style! My mother is seated on the far right of the photo.

I love the hairstyles and the big handbags!
