金龍校服 golden dragon school uniform

2014.4.19| 太子道 prince edward road

1973年成立的金龍校服,一直駐紮此地。好不體面的鋪面,有寬闊的飾櫃、金裝字型大小。

翻查舊聞。鋪頭除了生意上打拼外還有其他練曆,兩三年前發生過小火。而十年前,老闆娘遭逢行劫。報紙報導,方太李氏當年已八十二歲,給匪徒綑綁鋪內,劫走一千元。她則要三小時後才鬆綁報警。金龍有工廠,在開鋪初年的全盛期,為超過三百家學校縫製校服。

不異常但充滿血肉感動的白手興家香港故事。

this is a grand looking shop. it first opened right here in 1973. found few news clippings: mr and mrs fong started their school uniform at home in the 50s. they then found this shop space in 1973 and had uniform made in their own factory at to kwa wan. what a golden era, business built from scratch thanks to people’s own effort and endurance to hardship.

the business i believe is still run by the family.
