報紙檔 - 中環恒生銀行總行 press stand – hang seng bank hq, central

2014.12.6 德輔道中 des voeux road central

報紙檔是現今本城蠻詭異的產物和風光。年青一代都只用手機最多到便利店買他們的《100毛》,大人、老年人紛紛在早上排隊拿取免費報紙。剩餘下來,酒店旁遊客區的報紙檔尚有大陸客幫襯,中環金融區該還有批洋人西裝友的顧客。在此向所有每天頂著月亮開檔,開工吹著路面沙塵夏天冒著熱浪風雨冬天熬冷風的報檔大叔大嬸致敬。

press stands in hong kong is an endangered species. competitions – online news and entertainment, free newspapers – are drowning their business. transformation of the city also plays a key role. the city is less tolerant to street life and independent small business. so here is to pay my respect to all press stands and their owners and workers who brave early hours, polluted street air and extreme weathers.

此報紙檔置在恒生銀行總行門前,路面比較寬闊,有天橋底遮擋,配合金融時報的帳篷,鋪面不太大但有些氣派。this press stand is right in front of hang seng bank. it enjoys some luxury of wider street space and the shade of an overpass. it also has a nicer canopy sponsored by the financial times.
