Arthouse Sketchbook Project Page 31

bamboo steamer shop in Sai Ying Pun

This shop and the dried food / baskets shops may soon disappear from Hong Kong and be replaced by yet more designer stores as the M.T.R expands and rents become too high for small business.
Let's hope that some shops with character unique to H.K. remain


  1. What a shame that landlords are too greedy to recognise the need to keep individual shops like this.

    I like the contrast of pencil on the left and full colour on the right of the spread.

  2. It is sad to see shops like this go. Wonderful page!


Thanks for your comments everyone!
