    Question old hong kong photos

    Where can I buy good quality reprints or original old Hong Kong photos (1930-1970)? the ones i saw on the street (eg Stanley Market) are poor quality reprints not worthy of putting up on the wall...

    Try the shops on Hollywood road. (I suspect they're the same quality as Stanley Street).

    You can also try the SCMP archives.

    Not sure where if the official archives / museums have reprints for sale.

    been to the Hollywood road, it is full of Mao posters and some old cigarette advertising (very nice though) but haven't found many photos... cheers!

    Walk on Hollywood Road, away from the escalator towards Sheung Wan .. on the same side of the street as The Globe. You'll see a couple of small shop selling all sorts of junk... including reprints.
