about

When colonial mandarins expanded the borders of Hong Kong in 1898, they cared little that the new frontier cut straight through the middle of a small market town - in fact, down the middle of its main street. For the next 99 years, British servicemen faced Chinese soldiers - and sometimes red guards - across the narrow width of Chung Ying (China-Britain) Street. Through reminiscences and archive photos, many published for the first time, this book unveils the mysterious past of this unique border town.
Dr Lau Chi-pang lives in Hong Kong, where he is professor of history at Lingnan University.
