philroeder is currently publishing some wonderful photos from Hong Kong and Macau that his father took in the 1950s. He says:

"These photos were taken while my Dad served as a Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. They were taken with a Zeiss Ikon Contessa, a rangefinder with a folding Tessar f2.8/45mm lens, and were shot on 35mm Kodachrome transparency film."

You can visit his complete set Dad’s Photos to see the ones already uploaded and to follow along.

There are also some wonderful impressions in the Hong Kong Nostalgia group, and if you are still longing for more, try an advanced search to find Hong Kong and Macau photos taken before 1970.
