MAJOR SPEAKER : Chu, Cindy Yik-Yi
LENGTH : 53 min.

SUMMARY : Macau was a Portuguese colony, an entrepot of East-West trade, and a base for Christian missions. It has now become a world tourist attraction with its churches, heritage buildings, casinos, and motoring events. Through looking at the historical images of Macau in the 18th and 19th centuries, it is hoped that we can have a better understanding of the changing situations during and after the Opium War (1839-1842). The book features art works held in the Hong Kong Baptist University Library's Derwent Collection.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
