100 years ago, a small slice of Hong Kong was recreated next to Wembley Football Stadium in London, for the amusement of the British public. For two years, visitors travelled to the model street to sample Chinese food, purchase novelty souvenirs, and to educate themselves on the far eastern colony. Then, after only two years, the model village was abandoned and forgotten about. Armed with a drone, antique photographs, newspapers and maps, I have come to Wembley Football Stadium on a mission to rediscover this forgotten slice of Chinese history.
