Hong Kong double-decker tram 120 from the 1950's

Hong Kong Tram 120

Photographer's Note

This photo was taken in the North Point district of Hong Kong Island and the double-decker tram 120 from the 1950's.

In 1962, North Point was listed as the most densely populated place on earth by the Guinness Book of Records.

So, you can see from this photo, that nothing has changed much!

From Wikipedia :

"In the 1950's, Tramways undertook an extensive re-design and started building its own trams. Tram bodies adopted a 'modern' design.

Hong Kong double-decker tram #120 is the only tram in the current fleet to have retained its 1950s' style."
