Old Swire images in colour


Discover Hong Kong’s vibrant past through colourised photos! Today, Quarry Bay is a bustling residential and commercial district home to Taikoo Place, Taikoo Shing and Cityplaza. These iconic developments were built on the site of the former Taikoo Sugar Refinery and the old Taikoo Dockyard. Taikoo Sugar, established by Swire in 1881, remains a popular brand in Hong Kong to this day.

In collaboration with Oldhkincolour, through its AI-assisted colourisation and image restoration techniques, Swire Archives  is bringing these old Hong Kong pictures to life by transforming them from monochrome into vibrant, colourful images!
