尋找城市歷史痕跡4 -電車歷史圖片展 In search of the City’s Historical Trace IV – Old Tram Photo Exhibition
CACHe website English Version, 專題展覽, 最新活動

1904年,電車首次行駛於香港島的馬路上,曾經是陸上最快的公共交通工具,它連接起港島東西,揭開社會進步的序幕。百年過去,電車仍在路軌上穩然前進,速度卻早已被其他交通工具拋離;社會崇尚效率與經濟發展,生活節奏急速,電車的速度似乎與現代城市生活格格不入。

但隨著近年保育意識抬頭,本土歷史文化備受注視,電車的「慢」正好給予我們欣賞這個城市歷史的機會。我城今天在鐵路主導的發展主義下,面貌不斷急速變化,唯有電車與路軌尚在見證城市的變遷,沿路記載著流動的歷史。細看電車歷史圖片,就如重溫香港城市發展史。長春社文化古蹟資源中心有幸邀請到香港歷史圖片收藏家張順光先生,展出一系列電車歷史圖片,呈現經已消失的城市景觀與生活模式。走進舊圖片的世界,可以慢思細看電車與我城一百一十一年來的變遷,尋找被發展速度遺下的香港歷史。

In 1904, trams came into service in connecting the West and East of Hong Kong Island. Being the fastest road transport in early days, the running tramcars helped to unlock the era of the city’s growth along its track. Having served the city for over a century, the tramcars, despite its speed now being outdistanced by other modes of transport, are still up and running along the roads of Hong Kong. In this city where efficiency and economic development is prioritized, the slow-paced trams seem out of tune with the bustle and hustle of the city.

Yet, with the rising social awareness of local cultural heritage conservation in recent years, the slowness of these trams fortuitously gives us the chance to appreciate the historical fragments of the city. While the cityscape of Hong Kong is undergoing rapid transformation under the rail-oriented development, tramcars and tramway tracks remained to witness and capture the city’s growth path all along the way

By looking at the old tram photos, you are able to revisit the historical development of Hong Kong. The Conservancy Association Centre for Heritage (CACHe) is honoured to invite Mr Alan Cheung, an experienced collector of Hong Kong historical photos, in joining hands to exhibit a collection of old tram photos which display the city’s vanished landscape and the cultural patterns of old Hong Kong.

Let’s wander in the seas of old photos and take a closer look at the transitions of the trams and our city over the past 111 years, and to discover the part of Hong Kong history which was abandoned alongside the city’s rapid development.
