推土機前種花

Our Home, Sham Shui Po

書籍介紹

舊區要重建,政府說目標是改善居民生活,會用以人為本的方式進行,議會通過重建計劃。在深水埗的興華街、青山道、元州街上,一群將被清拆的唐樓,自此被統稱為K20-23項目。唐樓的年老居民犯了法,罪名是不肯依期遷出,「非法霸佔官地」。在推土機和舊樓磚牆之間,這群各有名字、各有故事的人,都叫做街坊;街坊有話想說,有沒有人要聽﹖《推土機前種花》是一頁一頁的口述歷史。區內古老店鋪的老闆細說的故事,既不可替代,亦無從複製,在在反映地道的生命力、創造力。作者並試圖從另一角度來看巿區重建:舊社區為何及如何嘗試保持原來的生活方式?
A visualisation of oral histories of shop-owners in Hong Kong: stories feature a 104-year old shop selling sauces, a pre-war shoe factory, tea shop, mechanic, and how a ‘flower-board’ sign-maker learned calligraphy from his late father… all in Sham Shui Po, a district earmarked for extensive demolition by a government urban renewal project. Sham Shui Po communicates a living culture of a creative commercial community, and shows why and how the people there are trying to preserve their ways of life before the area is razed.
