Signs and street scenes from Hong Kong in 1972
This photo essay on Business Insider shows photos of Hong Kong as it was in 1972, including many street scenes and various forms of signage. The photos are all by Nick DeWolf and more can be found in his corresponding Flickr set. The one above reminds me of the contemporary use of walls in Dhaka, capital of Bangladesh, as shown below and on this past ghostsigns post.
Does anyone know what the signs say?
