Furen Wenshe (Foo Yan Man Ser or Literary Society for the Promotion of Benevolence) was founded in Pak Tsz Lane by Yeung Ku-wan (Yang Quyun) and Tse Tsan-tai in 1892 with the aim of enlightening the public, and it also provided a meeting place for revolutionaries. Some of the members also joined the Xing Zhong Hui. The entrance to and steps up Pak Tsz Lane – the way that members would go when attending meetings – are unchanged today. This historic site is now marked by the Dr Sun Yat-sen Historical Trail. (A memorial plaque can be found in Pak Tsz Lane Park)
