Hong Kong 1938

Hong Kong in 1938

I wonder when the musical motif indicating ‘Oriental’ was first used? Here it is again… from 1938; that classic cliche of ‘Oriental’ tune making. Anyway, here’s HK in 1938 seen as a Gateway to pre-Communist China. Of course, no one was aware it was pre-Communist China at the time.

Please leave a comment. Many thanks.
