Sheung Wan (2020)
A poignant reminder of Hong Kong’s past, only one signboard remains on this now developed street in Sheung Wan. Once, it was filled with signs, all strategically placed so the businesses below could attract more customers. Now, the march of time has left only a small hint of this street’s bustling commercial past. Still, the remaining signs seem to reach out to the man on the bike, waiting for him to deliver the goods he’s carrying.
