What would come to your mind when speaking of a village? The natural scenery hidden behind small houses? The cooking smoke and smell of rice coming from farmhouses? The bittersweet memories that stir up from the wilderness? What was the life of villagers like before the village became modernised? A group of villages started from the times of farming, followed the days of industrial prosperity with factories, and welcomed large residential houses after the factories moved away. These villages have co-existed with the city all along. Sham Tseng, with a history of several hundred years, is such a unique place.
In those days, the simple and natural tastes were contained in the stoves, on the dining table and in the hills in Sham Tseng. Since the Castle Peak Road in Sham Tseng had been later built, the brewery, textile factory, and the bakery moved in one after another, transforming Sham Tseng into an industrial town. The rich aroma of beer, the fragrance of hops and the smell of baking bread filled the whole Sham Tseng in an instant. Whether it was a child born and raised in the village, a worker who worked in the factory, someone who wandered from other towns to establish his or her home here, or a guardian who performed his or her duties in the village, in the memories of each generation of villagers, they have their own unique flavour which lingers in their mind from time to time. What unforgettable flavours can you find in this community?
Sponsored by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, The Conservancy Association Centre for Heritage (CACHe) launched ‘“Beyond the Village” Cultural Heritage Scheme’. Throughout the whole of the past year, the team of CACHe has ‘travelled through’ Sham Tseng and explored it in depth. By consolidating the rich oral history and research findings, the book Travelling through Sham Tseng: Their Age After-Taste is published. Being the hints in the book, the flavours in the memories link up the daily lives and tell unique stories of the villages. Printed in full color with valuable historical images, this bilingual book can be obtained free of charge. You can enjoy savouring the moments and flavours of Sham Tseng.
