The panels were found in the attic of King's Restaurant located at 652 Baker Street in Nelson, BC. They were hung in the Chee Kong Tong Society, also known as the Nelson Chinese Masonic Lodge building.

Scope and content

Two long wooden panels painted red with words carved and painted in gold. It reads "Coming into the Temple, we hope all our brothers can jointly honour the pledge and not turn their backs to their promise to be determined, loyal and generous. You come to this land with business exchanges and all the craftsmanship you have created. May we all join in benefiting this country and its people. Chu Kwong Yuk respectfully composed these words and generously donated these couplet to this temple."
