Administrative History
The Chinese Herbalist shop "Way Sang Yuen Wat Kee & Co" operated in Victoria, BC from about 1905 until [1968]. The meaning of "Way Sang Yuen Wat Kee & Co" can be translated as "Collection, Life, Source, Alive, Shop" although many interpretations can be taken since each Chinese character can have several meanings. Contents of the shop were purchased by the Burnaby Village Museum in 1975 and reassembled as a permanent display in the Burnaby Village Museum. The shop’s original owner was Ng Chee Fong who opened the shop ca.1905. In 1921, Ng returned to Hong Kong and sold the business to Lam Yuen and Wong Ying who were from Vancouver. Lam Yuen and Wong Ying employed Lum Chuck Yue to operate the shop. Lum Chuck Yue had formerly operated a small herbal counter in a Chinese apothecary store on the south side of Fisgard Street, Victoria. Lum Chuck Yue In 1926 the new owners of the shop relocated to 1710 Government Street under the name "Way Sang Yuen Co." patent medicines. In 1935, the shop’s owner purchased another shop, “Wah Sun” which was operated as a patent medicine shop from 1924. They moved into these premises in part of the Lee Block at 1620 Government Street, the corner of Government and Fisgard Streets in the heart of Victoria’s Chinatown. Contents of both shops were combined with the elaborate fixtures of “Way Sang Yuen Wat Kee & Co” installed in the front of the shop and the plainer fixtures of “Wah Sun” moved to the rear work and storage areas. The rear of the shop also acted as an unofficial post office for recent Chinese immigrants who needed a permanent mailing address. A short time later in about 1936, “Way Sang Yuen Wat Kee & Co” was purchased by Tan Yi Tang who employed Yew Jong Lum as the shop’s proprietor. Eventually Yew Jong Lum became the owner and proprietor of the shop until his death in 1967 at the age of 68 years. Following Lum’s death, the property and contents of the shop were purchased by Mr. J. Watson Marles, a local owner operator of an antique store at 1714 Government Street. The shop and contents went through a few more private owners including Rodney Pain before it was purchased by the Heritage Village Museum in 1975 with funds made available by the Vancouver Foundation and the Province of British Columbia. Contents of the original shop were reasembled in a reconstructed building as a permanent display on site at the Burnaby Village Museum.
