2015-11 RTHK's Hong Kong Heritage - Lugard Road

Join us for a walk along Lugard Road, chatting about its history. Here is the link to listen to the show: http://podcast.rthk.org.hk/podcast/item_epi.php?pid=164&lang=en-US&id=62986

I'll include notes and photos below, with the time as it is shown on the podcast player. You can click on any photo to see a larger view and more information about the scene.

Thanks to Annemarie for inviting me on to her show, and congratulations on the new format. Starting this week her show has doubled in length to 30 minutes.

Regards, David
