Hong Kong like you’ve never seen it before….

You might have never heard of Michael Rogge. I certainly haven’t. Mr Rogge loves to travel and takes video recordings of places he visits.

Now, you might think that’s nothing too special. After all we’re all equipped with smartphones and built-in cameras. What makes Mr Rogge’s case special is that he’s in his 80s now. The time when he travelled the world was from the 1940s onwards.

His first job post as a young man brought him to Hong Kong. And if you’re used to the Hong Kong in the 21st century you’ll never imagine how the city looked just a few decades before.

His playlist features a staggering 159 videos – and that just for Hong Kong / Macau. The videos were taken from 1949 to the 1960s/70s.

Below you find the playlist to all his 159 Hong Kong videos.
