Echoes of Old China by Trea Wiltshire



Large paperback in Very Good (VG) condition. 

This appealing book invites readers to savour the handful of old Chinese shops that still remain in Hong Kong in the 1990s, echoing old China, its beliefs and traditions. In these shops there is still time to relish the brushstrokes of fine calligraphy, to exchange niceties over a cup of fragrant tea, and to savour a lingering sense of formality and unhurried gentility. Two long-serving Hong Kong photographers journeyed from teahouse to medicine shop to alley seal-engravers to capture the charm of a bygone world, while writer Trea Wiltshire has fondly placed each shop in its historical and social context.
