The Floating Population of Hong Kong, N825, published by National Co., circa 1980, 10 x 14.8 cm.

Photographed in a summer day in the 1960s in Aldrich Bay, it shows families who live on the boat in Hong Kong. The young mother in the foreground is catching her balance on her way to town with her son. She is not from a fisherman's family and to adapt her life on the boat with her in-law family is never an easy task. At this moment, she would not imagine the opportunity for her to leave the boat forever was a huge fire burning down the homes of 3000 people during Chinese New Year in 1976.
