The Kowloon railway terminus in Tsim Sha Tsui was demolished in 1978. Today, only two traces of the old station remain in the city: six columns standing at the Urban Council Centenary Garden, and the now ‘Former Kowloon-Canton Railway Clock Tower’, still on the tip of the Kowloon peninsula. Adonis M. Y. Li explores attempts to preserve the station, in which a nascent civil society searched for help from local government, London officials, and even the Queen. He explores how Hong Kong people and officials in both London and Hong Kong thought about the relationship between place and people.
