Asia Insurance Building, 1950s : exterior


This photograph shows the entrance to the Asia Insurance Building, with the building's name in both Chinese and English on its walls. The two sides of the building, with their distinctive lines, diverge from a central narrow section and are uniform in appearance. This original façade of the building can still be seen today after its conservation and redevelopment into serviced apartments. Title devised by Library staff. Date of creation estimated.
