    Be it the passing scenery,
    Or the collective memory that has always accompanied us,
    “Ding Ding” not only brings with it the road travelled by the Hong Kong people across the century,
    But also carries the traditional culture and the spirit of Hong Kong.

    The author has collected more than 200 precious photos and relevant literature
    To concisely and gently present the history of tram development And little known trivia on the production and anecdotes.
    Most of the photos in the book have never been published,
    Aiming to share with tram fans and like-minded friends
    On both the history of and the tenderness one gets from the love of trams.



  • Eric Tsun-lung Lee
    Lee was born as a Post-‘80s and a huge fan of trams. He has been in love with trams since young and devoted himself to conducting research on and collecting tram-related literature and photos from the past. Recently, he has established “Hong Kong Trams Enthusiast (Tram Friends)” to promote trams. Due to his deep understanding of the tram development in Hong Kong, Lee is often invited to press interviews, organize exhibitions, and speak at meetings of clubs and associations to share his rich knowledge of trams. At the end of 2013, Lee opened the first museum “Hong Kong Trams Station” at the Peak Galleria, sharing his comprehensive collection with the public.
