Address Plaque Numbers

  • CA NWM_ NWM_IH1980.30.5.1-3
  • Item

Rusted metal numbers "825." Each number has four small holes in the metal for affixing the number. The number is probably from an adjoining building by the Chinese Benevolent Association building at 824 Agnes Street. This latter location was formerly the Chinese Hospital, built in 1904, and later converted into the Chinese Benevolent Society building. When the society disbanded in 1980, it donated the site to the City in thanks for the many years of its support through its tax free status.

His brother, Tang, Kam Hey, joined him for a short time but went back to China, Soue never did return home to his family but is very likely to have transpacific ties to the family in china today.
