興泰儀

藝術家:麥嘉欣

物換星移,鴨脷洲大街逐漸披上城市發展的外衣,小島上有一間跨越兩個世紀,真正隱世的百年小店──興泰儀。1894年因為一場鼠疫,興泰儀由港島太平山街搬來鴨脷洲,經歷四代人掌舵。第三代店主盧先生指,興泰儀在祖父年代以賣菜為生,戰後變成米舖,後期再加入糧油雜貨售賣。藝術家麥嘉欣以此作為靈感,在鐵閘作品的左方畫上守業的祖父,右方則是盧先生騎在父親的胳膊上,背景是代表興泰儀的稻米。如果你來到興泰儀,千萬不要錯過掛在橫樑上的百年鎮店牌匾,以及地面的古舊水磨石地磚!

Hing Tai Yee
Artist: Marka Mak

Despite decades of development and urbanisation, Ap Lei Chau is still home to some historic gem. One of them is Hing Tai Yee, which was first established around 200 years ago in Tai Ping Shan Street in Sheung Wan. When an outbreak of the plague in the Tai Ping Shan area forced the shop to close, it was relocated to its current location in Ap Lei Chau. According to the current owner Mr Lo, the shop has been in his family for four generations. Originally a vegetable store, Hing Tai Yee has also been a rice shop, and now stocks a range of groceries. The shutter artwork is inspired by the store’s history, and shows three generations of Mr Lo’s family – his grandfather, father and Mr Lo himself as a young boy – against a background of rice. When you enter the shop, be sure to check out the century-old calligraphic plaque hanging on the ceiling beam and the vintage terrazzo floor tiles.
