Hong Kong Island was officially ceded to Britain by the Qing Government through the Treaty of Nanking on 29 August 1842. It was created as a Crown Colony named Victoria with Sir Henry Pottinger appointed as its first governor.  Kowloon Peninsula and Stonecutters Island were later ceded to Britain after the Second Opium War under the Convention of Beijing. The British set up a local government in Hong Kong and immediately started planning and developing the city. 

 

Through a selection of historical photographs and maps, the Exhibition reveals the everyday life of early Hong Kong and its local scenery during that period of time.
