Land Use Survey Photos

This collection contains photographs taken between the 1950s and the 1960s by students of the University of Hong Kong during field trips. In preparing their final year dissertations, undergraduates of the Department of Geography and Geology conducted land use surveys during summer in different parts of Hong Kong and collected first-hand information of a vanishing city by interviewing, observing and photo-taking. Many scenes of urban areas, the New Territories and the Outlying Islands captured by the students during their field trips, have now become unique historical records.
