Here is an idea for your Heritage Detectives project if you still need one. If you intend to cover this, please email olivia.chavassieu@scmp.com to let us know. We don't want to have two teams covering the same topic.

**** Hung Lau

**** Tong Lau residences
Tong Lau are tenement buildings built in late 19th century to the 1960s. We often passed them by in the Western District and Sham Shui Po. They embody a unique culture - tight relationship between neighbours, simple entertainment and rooftop schools. Their heyday and decline is closely related to the social and cultural development of Hong Kong.
The Peak Galleria is now featuring an exhibition about these residences of another time. There will be items taken from those homes on show and also a couple of speeches by academics. The exhibition runs until May 2.
