The Hong Kong Heritage Project

The Hong Kong Heritage Project (HKHP) was founded by Sir Michael Kadoorie in 2007 to preserve history and promote the appreciation of heritage in Hong Kong. HKHP’s photograph collection reflects the multiple facets of Hong Kong’s recent history. With hundreds of old photographs collected from various Kadoorie businesses and interests, the core collection showcases the history of Kowloon, with a focus on heavy and light industries, power supply, the agricultural New Territories, and the evolution of tourism and tourist amenities. Their holdings also include photographs captured by Lord Lawrence Kadoorie, an avid photographer who captured urban and rural streetscapes. HKHP has been fortunate to receive numerous photograph donations from Hong Kong and overseas that have greatly enriched the collection.
