Dr Sun Yat-sen & Hong Kong: Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum Exhibition Catalogue
Featuring insightful articles and around 500 historical images and maps, this newly edited catalogue is divided into three main sections: ‘Dr Sun Yat-sen and Modern China' explores Dr Sun's life and his path from school to revolution; ‘Hong Kong in the Time of Dr Sun Yat-sen' explains why Hong Kong proved to be such an effective staging post for Dr Sun's revolutionary cause in terms of timing, geographical convenience and human talent; ‘The Development of the Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum' looks at the history of the 100-year-old Kom Tong Hall, which houses the museum today, as well as the colourful life of its original owner, Ho Kom-tong. Shedding light on the indissoluble links that connect Dr Sun with Hong Kong, the catalogue pays tribute to this great historical figure on the 130th anniversary of his first visit to the territory.
