PHOTOGRAPHY – When the MTR Was New

The MTR is 35 years old this year and is often hailed as one of the world’s best mass transportation systems. American photographer Leroy W. Demery Jr took photos of the MTR and KCR system in 1980 – a year after it opened. Leroy used a Canon TX SLR camera with Kodachrome colour slide film – he bought it in 1976 and still uses it today.
