【大廈名字系列 building name series】白花大廈 pak far building

2014.8.2 | 石硤尾街 51 shek kip mei road

pak far bldg

這個角樓,位處深水埗長沙灣。新式的唐樓建築,建於1957年。

值得大力一提,是大廈的名字*從上而下以美麗楷書浮雕在角位。

雖然照片正方有元州街的路牌,但建築座落石硤尾街跟大埔道交匯。

網上找不到大廈正式的歷史資料。但從討論區搜尋到1960年的面貌,大廈簇新威水,而且樓頂有白花油大大的廣告牌,相信樓名與藥油公司有點淵源。歡迎部落友提供資料。大廈相信是商住兩用,因為找到樓盤也有中醫的資料。

this corner building is at shum shui po near cheung sha wan. it is a ‘newer’ walk-up built in 1957.

look carefully, you can see the name of the building* is displaying on the facade top down in handsome chinese calligraphic style

even though the road sign says un chau street, the building is actually on shek kep mei street crosses tai po road.

i cannot find much background and info of this building. but from an old hk forum, i found a photo of it in 1960. it looked fresh and handsome then, with a big billboard of ‘pak fa oil’ (a chinese medicinal oil) on top of the building. there must be some connection between the product and the naming of it. if any blog reader know about it, please share.

the building is of mixed usage – residential and commercial. some chinese doctors are registered here.
