Eu Yan Sang at Leech Street

Eu Yan Sang is a famous brand for Chinese traditional medicine. It is founded in 1879 by Eu Kong, who migrated from Southern China to Malaya. He settled down in Gopeng town, which was a boosting tin mining town. He helped the tin miners recovering from their physical suffering & health damages. Later, Eu Tong Sen, his eldest son, was expending the business to Kampar, Ipoh, Singapore and as far as Hong Kong. This Eu Yan Sang building in Leech Street still marked with his name and the year of completion, 1907. A hundred year later, many of the neighbouring structures have been rebuilt but this building remain unchanged, just like what was captured in the below photo (first shop on right hand).
