Hong Kong, September 3, 2013
IN CELEBRATION of its 80th anniversary this year, the Gloucester Luk Kwok Hong Kong is holding an exhibition that will include vintage items and priceless exhibits owned by the hotel owners' family.
Witness of Time: Luk Kwok Reminiscent Collection Exhibition will run until November 15 at Gloucester Luk Kwok Hong Kong.
Visitors can expect to see items such as the menu of the hotel’s Chinese restaurant in the 1930s, when a bowl of bird’s nest soup and shark’s fin soup cost only HK$1 (US$0.13); the hotel’s original signage in 1933 which had been welcoming visitors from all over the world for years; as well as luggage badges and door key chains from the 1970s to the 1980s revealing the design trend in the old days.
Exhibition visitors also stand to win prizes by completing the crossword puzzle game during the exhibition period or by joining the competition to come up with a creative congratulatory message.
