One of the tenement buildings restored as part of the Shanghai street project in Yau Ma Tei.
10 such blocks in Mong Kok have been newly restored, telling the near-forgotten story of Hong Kong from some 100 years ago.
Standing on Shanghai Street since the 1920s, around the corner from the densely packed Argyle Street, these 10 blocks have been home to generations of Hongkongers and seen decade upon decade of change.
After a lengthy HK$200 million restoration project by the Urban Renewal Authority (URA), dubbed “618 Shanghai Street”, these prewar shophouses are again showing off their original bones. 📷: SCMP/Winson Wong
