Our new book The Peak: An Illustrated History of Hong Kong’s Top District has just been reviewed in the South China Morning Post.

The area’s evolution is brought to life in The Peak through the use of an impressive 140 pictures, including early paintings showing The Peak towering over the young colony, photographs of the first Peak mansions such as The Eyrie and La Hacienda, and beautifully colourised postcards showing expensive villas sprouting on the lush hillsides as the colony flourished.

The review includes lots of historical photos. Click here to read it.
