King & Country

From the mid-nineteenth century until the mid-twentieth century pawn shops could be found in most commercial districts in Hong Kong. Pawnbroking itself however was not legalized until 1926 although authorities usually turned a ‘blind eye’ to most operators.
This new SOOHK building has the ground floor pawn shop protected by decorative and sturdy metal grills and bars while an entrance way leads upwards to the first floor dwelling and terrace.
On this upper area figures and decorative plants can also be placed. Figures are sold separately.
