108 year ago today, the Revolution of 1911 broke out. Sun Yat-sen adopted the Three People’s Principles as a Platform to establish a revolutionary organisation, armed uprising, and successfully overthrown the Qing Dynasty. The “Democratic Front” holds a rally at the Red House in Tuen Mun every year to commemorate the anniversary of the revolution. The Double Ten commemorative activities initiated by netizens are flourishing in all districts today.
Hung Lau (Red House), a Grade I historic building, was built between 1905 and 1910on former farmland in Pak Kok, Tuen Mun. It was used by the Hsing Chung Hui (Revive China Society) as a base for revolutionary activities against the Qing dynasty.
It is named for its red-pigmented external surface rendering. The two-storey house is a mix of Chinese and Western influences. Adjacent to the house is a park commemorating Dr Sun Yat-sen who founded the Republic of China and one of few places in Hong Kong where the flag of the Republic is hoisted continuously.
