霓虹紀錄 neon record – 單眼佬涼茶 single-eyed man herbal tea

2018.04.29 | 廟街 151 temple street 從1950 年代開始,「單眼佬涼茶」已經鎮守油麻地廟街。 不能想像廟街這方地面少了這單邊鋪面,不能想像這片天空失去這正直大幅的霓虹招牌。 招牌頂小字橫寫「春和堂」,主題由上至下。 亮燈時,小字和外框紅色,招牌字白燈。 single-eyed man herbal tea has been basing at temple street in yau ma tei since the 1950s. just wish this historic shop & business and true people’s brand to stay healthy and keep its longevity for long. the neon signboard is simple and neat, […]

霓虹記錄 neon record – 泉章居 & 華夏別墅 chuen cheung kui & hua ha guest house

2018.02.25 | 旺角染布房街 yim po fong street 從旺角東火車站走落亞皆老街,抬頭張望,視線落在染布房街,因為兩個大型的霓虹招牌。 前面『華夏別墅』屬「純粹租房」式的賓館。斗大楷書只為一個訊息,告訴你這裡有房出租。 後面『泉章居』則花巧多。圖像有皇冠包圍「金牌鹽焗雞」,標示其招牌菜;文字強調「正宗客菜」;主角是其金漆名號。搜尋資料,才得知這是「當代草聖」于右任大師的墨寶。後知後覺,連番審視觀賞那揮就灑脫的字體,對此七十多年歷史的飲食行尊,多一番感受。 插寫于大師的資歷,他是清舉人,同盟會成員,民國政府的開國元老,亦是中國書法名家。 yesterday afternoon i took a different route after exiting the mong kok east train station and there we have some great street scenery discovery. walking on argyle street, looking around. two neon billboards drew my eyes to the skyline along yim po fong street.

霓虹招牌 – 弼街通菜街 neon billboards – bute street crosses tung choi street

2017.11.26 | 弼街通菜街  bute street / tung choi street  旺角東站出來這片繁華地,霓虹招牌,依然豁亮,一條街道,竟然有多個霓虹燈,在政府執行了新的街道大型招牌的條例後,實在買少見少。 愛霓虹的朋友,要珍惜多來欣賞。特別是老寶號的省鏡招牌: 金城賓館,賓館已經是昏黃的事業;簡單的霓虹,佈局也訴說其歷史,中文右至左,英文左至右。巧妙地框框內只剩「城」中英文字亮著,王家衛的情懷飄蕩。 金華冰廳,遊客心目中的名牌茶餐廳,那不規則的招牌外框造型,顯示一種草根的不乖品性,冰廳茶餐廳本該如是。 百寶堂,門面金色銅製,是老式而具規模的涼茶鋪格局。招牌也可愛地以龜苓膏作招徠。 choose tung choi street/bute street exit at mong kok east mtr, you will easily come down to this stretch of road. what a bless. this street is still shining with more than one neon light billboards. after the government implemented the new […]
