The only comprehensive showcase of Hong Kong to take place in Britain during the colonial era

In 1924 and 1925, the British Empire Exhibition was held at Wembley Park in London to promote cooperation within the British Empire. Hong Kong took part, with its own exhibition area – the Hong Kong Section – which was the only comprehensive showcase of Hong Kong to take place in Britain during the colonial era.   The exhibition occurred at a time of great ferment in Hong Kong. In the 1920s, British imperialism and Chinese nationalism shaped the city’s sociopolitical environment. Two large general strikes, both of which involved two major political parties from China (the Communist Party of China and the Nationalist Party), also took place in Hong Kong before and during the exhibition. The organising of the Hong Kong Section, the design of the pavilion, the exhibits, and the contemporary responses in both Britain and Hong Kong all reflect Hong Kong’s relationship with Britain and China in the 1920s.   

 

Hong Kong’s involvement in the exhibition is not very well known in Hong Kong. None of the buildings from the British Empire Exhibition survive today. This book is based on the author’s archival research, and more than 180 items he has collected to tell the story of the Hong Kong Section. The valuable items are a tangible reminder of the era, which bring us back to the 1920s.

在殖民地統治期間,

香港僅此一次在英國進行的綜合展覽

超過180件近一世紀歷史藏品

在1924及1925年,位於英國倫敦的溫布萊公園舉辦了大英帝國博覽會(時稱「英京賽會」),藉以推動大英帝國內的合作。香港於專屬的「香港展區」參展,是在殖民統治期間,香港僅此一次在英國進行的綜合展覽。這次博覽會在香港燥動的年代舉行。在1920年代,香港的社會政治環境深受英國帝國主義及中國民族主義的影響。在籌備及展覽期間,亦發生了兩場牽涉兩個中國主要政黨(共產黨及國民黨)的大罷工。這次博覽會的組織過程、展館設計、展品選擇,以至當時香港及英國的反應,都說明了香港在1920年代與英國及中國的關係。

 

甚少香港人知道香港曾參與英京賽會,而博覽會的所有建築物現時已不復存在。本書根據作者的檔案研究的研究成果,以及他所收集的超過180件藏品,重組香港展區的故事。這些見證時代的藏品,將帶我們回到1920年代,極具收藏價值。
