梁國英藥房今天好像只剩深水埗這家鋪面。

網上嘗試搜尋店的資料,赫然發現這是家老牌店家。

有趣的是從前寶號「梁國英報藥局」,據長春社資源社區中心資料說,其生意涉獵廣,『早期在中環文咸街開設總局 …… 主要從事漂染和出版書籍工作』。又從楊國雄所著《舊書刊中的香港身世》讀到『一本《人間漫刊》……1931年創刊。督印人龍永英 …… 據梁國英藥局東主梁晃所說,他也有份辦理這份期刊。』今天貌似一般藥房的店家,原來歷史悠久,而且背後有色彩又有書香。

我住港島,自少乘電車經過灣仔,都記得灣仔道口那家梁國英,印象深刻,因為那強而深的寶號字體。幾年前藥房撤出,很失落。到近這年,多了流連九龍,漫遊深水埗才不防驚喜地發覺這熟悉的字體。

如果有中文字體或招牌字體的朋友,請教這字體的名字和資料。

the neon here says leung kwok ying, from right to left. this is the neon of leung kwok ying dispensary.

from the sequence of the chinese characters, you probably could have guess that this is a shop with some history.

from some written materials as well as old photos on the internet, the shop could traced back to the 1930s in sheung wan/ central. interestingly the original shop even though carried the word “medicine” or “drug” in the name, its business also spread across dyeing, cloths and publishing.

time flies. it seems that this shop is now down to this outlet in shum shui po.
