kowloon walled city http://kalw.org en 99% Invisible: The most densely populated place on record http://kalw.org/post/99-invisible-most-densely-populated-place-record <p>In 1898, China granted a 99-year lease to Great Britain for the areas across the harbor in the British controlled island of Hong Kong. But smack in the middle of that territory, known as Kowloon, was an enclave that wasn't included in the lease. A place that would, at least officially, still be controlled by the Chinese. It was a large fort, built decades earlier to put a check on British expansion. But it evolved into something very, very different.&nbsp;</p><p> Wed, 09 Jan 2013 01:40:40 +0000 Roman Mars 21482 at http://kalw.org 99% Invisible: The most densely populated place on record
