The Industrial History of Hong Kong Group
Groupe fondé en novembre 2012 par Hugh Farmer, un enseignant installé à Hong Kong depuis 1989, dans le but de sauvegarder le patrimoine industriel de Hong Kong, en voie de disparition.
Le site Internet du projet a été créé en octobre 2013. Il s’intéresse à toute l’histoire industrielle de Hong Kong. Le site est participatif, autrement dit chaque personne intéressée par le sujet peut y contribuer.
The Group is for anyone who has knowledge of, or who wishes to learn about, Hong Kong’s wide-ranging industrial history. We are interested in the entire history of production in Hong Kong – producing sea salt probably began in the 3rd century BC.
We are of course mainly concerned with manufacturing: from incense to textiles, cameras to rickshaws. However, our research also covers many aspects of agriculture and fishing, food and beverages, mines and quarries, shipbuilding and ship breaking, technical education, telecommunications, traditional industries, transport and utilities. And much more…
Industrial Hong Kong has adapted and changed quickly throughout its history and many of its industrial areas and factories have disappeared. Where possible however we try to investigate physical remains.
We are also interested in the people who worked in industry from the poor and unknown to the rich and famous.
Free and open access to the materials are permitted for research, private study and other non-commercial purposes.
