Original Site of the Nam Pak Hong Union
Bonham Strand West

In 1868, the merchants of Nam Pak Hong, including Fung Ping-shan, founded the Nam Pak Hong Union, which was later renamed the Nam Pak Hong Chamber of Commerce. The chamber laid down a set of professional ethics for its members in the Nam Pak Hong Codes of 1920, but it also played a role in maintaining law and order as well as acting as the fire station in the district. After the chamber relocated in 1953, a new building was built here in 1954, and the site was redeveloped in 1997.
