The ARB reviewer of Volume 1 of Old Hong Kong Photos and the Tales They Tell wrote “Let’s hope the next one comes out soon.” As requested, Volume 2 is now available, with a new selection from David Bellis’s collection of old Hong Kong photos. He puts each photo under the magnifying glass, using enlargments to show its secrets: flying Italian miners, and the most beautiful woman you’ll never see are just two of the surprises in store. Then he tells the stories of the photo’s scene and its highlights, introducing Hong Kong’s history in an easily accessible way.
