Exhibition Place
Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter

Early on, Hong Kong’s port development was closely bound up with British colonial policy. Completed in 1883, the Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter was near the area of East Point, therefore in close proximity to the warehouses of the foreigntrading companies, the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club on Kellett Island (also known as Tang Lung Chau) and the British Naval Base. Many Tanka people who settled here no longer live by fishing, but by supplying goods and repairing boats for the shipyards. Miriam Lee, whose last seven generations of ancestors all lived in the Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter, will lead this tour. Tracing back her family memories, Lee would share the cultural landscape of the typhoon shelter and its inhabitants in history. The tour will start from the footbridge on Gloucester Road and take the audience to the typhoon shelter and seawall on boat.

*Guided tour will be conducted in Cantonese
