General Description

"The 4-storey shop house is believed to be built in early 1920s. It was originally located in waterfront prior to subsequent reclamation works along the shore. It was used for both commercial and residential purposes. It was occupied by a mat retailer named Kwong Lee Mat Shop in 1934. In 1985, Lai Fung Distillery Ltd operated in the ground floor of the premises. Its signage at the shop front can still be found although the company no longer exists."
