Scope and Content
Item consists of a one page notice handwritten in Cantonese in black ink on rice paper. The notice publicizes the service offered by Way Sang Yuen Wat Kee & Co where money could be transferred by an individual bank to their country of origin. The rear of the shop acted as an unofficial post office for recent Chinese immgrants who needed a permanent mailing address. The notice was translated in English, the larger words translate to: "Our shop offers remittance service to Hong Kong. The process is faster than others no matter how much you are wiring. If the family of any overseas compatriots who are living in Hong Kong need money urgently, [we] can also speed up the remittance. Your patronage is very welcomed.". The smaller words translate to: "The valued customers have to take care of the remittance fee on your own. Connection to any city in the Canton province; fast and proper remittance."
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.
