Reading in Macau
Once upon a time children would concentrate on books, maybe on magazines too. Nowadays they spend as much time on phones and tablets and games consoles. I think many of us would consider that they are losing out, maybe by losing the ability to concentrate for any length of time, the ability to spell and even the ability to imagine.
The children on this postcard were pictured in Macau in 1967 by the photographer Fong Chi Fung, as part of a series, Yesterday Forever. The title of the phot0 is "Concentration, San Kiu District".
