#3-5 Pennington Road, Causeway Bay - Tak Hing Pawn Shop on #3, IL 6650 [????- ]

I included this one despite it's lack of pillars.  Its staircase was made of wood alright.  If it's appearance is not the same as those Guangzhou style ones, it is just as old.  At least it is older than I am.  By the way, if you pay attention to the bronze plate when you walk by, you would recognize the same corporation operates at least four pawn shops on our list here.
