Sign (Advertising Medium)

  • CA NAN NAN_1975.022.001
  • Item
  • 1975-01-1

This sign was imported from China and mounted on the Kong Nam Low Restaurant located on the west side of in Nanaimo's Chinatown. The gold-painted Chinese characters read "Kong Nam Low" in Cantonese. Kong Nam means south of the river and Low means teahouse. The sign is in the shape of a bat with four smaller bats attached which convey the good luck wish "May the five heavenly rats visit your home." The second word of bat in Chinese shares the sound of the word 福, the word for blessing so bats became a common decorative pattern. The symbol at the top of the sign means longevity. The restaurant was owned by Ah Thom from Pon Yue.

Opium Tin (Merchandising T&E)

  • CA NAN NAN_1978.172.001
  • Item
  • 1978-12-07

Local provenance. Found by Ed. Lee & Bill Spowart in basement of house in Chinatown after the 1960 fire tucked behind a beam. 2 marks. The larger one reads, モLi-yuanヤ (=Lai Yuan) which is an early high-quality brand supposedly imported from HK, commonly found in North America. See http://www.cinarc.org/Opium.html#anchor_89 The smaller one reads, モLin-jiヤ (=Lam Kee, a later Macao opium refiner-exporter). See http://www.cinarc.org/Opium-2.html#anchor 255 The box probably came from Macao, and may represent the transition from the period when opium was legal (before 1908-9) and when it became illegal, allowing new refiner-exporters to enter the market.
