The first FULL cross-section of Kowloon Walled City

You probably think you've seen this image before. Not so fast. You almost certainly saw a version of it that cut off the right side (page 12 of the scan). The version of this image that has been passed around the internet for years is based on an incomplete scan that someone made many years ago. I don't have access to the original book it appeared in, but I did find a different scan that included page 12, and used it to create a composite of the entire illustration. I believe this to be the first of its kind on the internet(?) I wrote about the process on my website, and also uploaded the high-res images of each stage in the process: http://www.zachscott.org/2018/12/23/compositing-kowloon
