Scope and Content
Photograph of wooden medicine boat grinder. The medicine boat grinder appears to have a circular, flat, wooden wheel or disc, with two spokes attached to each side. It is placed in a wooden boat like structure, where it can be used to roll and grind. It is situated on a wooden board floor among stacked wooden boxes and tin can, a wooden stool chair and some woven, natural material. Some of the boxes and tin can around the grinder have labels on them with Chinese characters.
Administrative History
Way Sang Yuen Wat Kee & Co (WSYWK) was an herbalist shop operating in Victoria from 1905 until 1967. From 1905 until 1926, the shop was located on Fisgard Street. In 1926, the shop relocated to 1710 Government Street where they ran the business until 1935 when they purchased "Wah Sun" in the Lee Block located at 1620 Government Street. Contents of both shops were combined with the elaborate fixtures of "Way Sang Yuen Wat Kee & Co." installed at the front of the shop and the plainer fixtures of "Wah Sun" moved to the work and storage areas. The rear of the shop also operated as an unofficial post office for recent Chinese immigrants.
