“Play” is the common language of every childhood. The ways of playing vary in different years. In the ages when the internet was not popular, walking and exploring around the community was the best leisure activity. Working at factories in To Kwa Wan, taking a day trip to Hoi Sham Island, spending time at Hung Hom Square, and looking for new games at Pearl House Shopping Centre in Kowloon City were all the collective memories of the neighbourhood which also reflected the changes in the old district.
In the past year, we had organised different activities collecting photos and texts to gather participants’ collective memories in Kowloon City District. Part of the submissions, supplemented by old photos, are displayed in this exhibition.
