    Where to find prints of old photos of Hong Kong

    Old black and white photos from Hong Kong - just a place to pick up prints of them that I can get framed and decorate my place with.
    Any thoughts?

    If you're really into it, check out these two Facebooks. If you search, many districts have their own 'old photo' Facebook, for example, Tuen Mun has a fab one...

    Log In | Facebook

    Log In | Facebook Even older pics.

    Actually, everyone should have a nose at these, really cool Facebooks and there are a few old videos in there as well...

    No good for hanging on the wall, though, Bryant.

    "picture this" in the princes building has loads of old HK pics, many different sizes. It is on the same floor as Oliver's.

    i'm also guessing that the photos @ picture this will be 50X more expensive?

    oh, and i just remembered there was a photographer at the peak galleria who had a photo shop.. he had some great photos (but more expensive, too)

    gwulo.com has photos for sale, which date back from the 1880s to the 1970s. There is even a book with a collection of photos.

    Can be, but there are specials and promos now and then, and the smaller photos can be reasonably priced. Also I think they have originals, hence the slightly higher price tags.

    Lawrence Lai Gallery. Yes, not cheap, and I don't recall seeing any old pictures.
