The last neon lights

Neon lights were first demonstrated by (Nikola Tesla) at the Chicago Exposition in 1893.

In 1910, Paris electrical engineer Georges Claude obtained a neon light patent after solving practical engineering problems.

Later, the neon lights also came to Shanghai and Hong Kong in the East. After 1949, the Chinese mainland's thinking changed, and the brightly coloured neon signs became a symbol of corruption in capitalism.
The 60s and 90s represented the prosperity and brilliance of Hong Kong. The densely packed neon tubes have also become a feature of Hong Kong's night scenes, attracting the eyes of tourists from all over the world. Unfortunately, since 2010, the implementation of new buildings and Hong Kong government legislation have restricted these. By design, Hong Kong people have not vigorously protected their own culture. Now, these cultural characteristics that have witnessed the prosperity of Hong Kong have gradually faded.
