The Iconic Advertising Signs of Nathan Road
Nathan Road Hong Kong Advertising Signs

Originally named after the 13th Hong Kong Governor, Sir Matthew Nathan, his Lordship wouldn't recognise what's become of this formerly peaceful suburban neighbourhood. Now Hong Kong's most famous shopping street, Nathan Road was nicknamed the Golden Mile in the 70's and is today best known for its jungle of advertising signs, which are squeezed in at every possible height and angle. These signs are one of Hong Kong's most iconic images and proof of its dawn to dusk shopping addiction.
