HK Urban Canvas 2022 – Quarry Bay Guided Cultural Tour

Quarry Bay: From industrial hub to commercial and residential area (FULL)

In the 1880s, Quarry Bay was the largest industrial area on Hong Kong Island. It was also home to the Taikoo Dockyard and Sugar Refinery, both of which were owned by Butterfield & Swire. To provide accommodation for the large numbers of workers, the company set up a dormitory complex on the summit of Mount Parker, with health care, education and recreation facilities. They also developed a cable car system – the first ever in Hong Kong – to transport staff up and down the steep hill to and from work. Today, while the dockyard and refinery may have been closed, Quarry Bay remains a bustling hub with busy commercial and residential areas.

Our docent will lead the participants to explore the history and transformation of Quarry Bay and visit the Swire Archives. The staff of the Swire Archives will introduce the precious historical relics of the corporate, recalling our collective memories of Hong Kong. Come and join us!
