3 November 1941 - Liquor Licences

SEARCH FOR: "Licensing Sessions"

While following the Gwulo trail to the Chardhaven Hotel's liquor licence in 1938, I came across the last meeting of the Liquor Licencing Board on 4 November 1941.  The most poignant was a new application for "The Halfway House" 9 Taipo Road.  I have not yet found out if Charles Choy was granted a licence ...

For those who may not know, the literal translation of the Chinese for "hotel"- "jau dim (酒店)"  is "liquor shop".
