茶行招牌 signboard of a tea shop

2013.6.5 | 莊士頓道 johnston road

很秀氣的招牌。一片茶葉,書法字體(跟鋪頭字體一致)。

這招牌掛在這段路上很久了。每次經過,百看不厭。

鋪外那個金色的茶煲,應該沒有比招牌歷史久遠。勝在貼題且增加生趣。

從祺棧茶行的網站知道其歷史,成立於1942年,一直都在莊士頓道上。是否同一位置則沒有提及。創業的老闆,名字有個祺字。現在仍是家族經營。老店且是子承父店,再看茶葉招牌,更覺味道。

this is an adoring good old signboard. elegant and precise. a piece of tea leaf with the name of the shop in chinese calligraphy style.

ki chan tea co has been around johnston road since 1942. don’t think the signboard is as old, but i’ve seen it there for ages. the shop is now run by the son of the original owner.

even though it is an old business, but appreciate some new elements, like the shining tea kettle hanged outside the shop, cute.
