A booklet introducing the routes, "Notes of a Heritage Visitor", has been produced by the Commissioner for Heritage's Office and is being distributed to visitors free of charge during the roving exhibition period.
Commenced in December 2010, the exhibition has been shown at various locations in Hong Kong and has attracted 70,000 visitors to date.
