At 104, Chinatown shop closes
VANCOUVER—After 104 years in business, family-run Ho Sung Hing Printers closed its Chinatown shop on the weekend, reports the Vancouver Courier. The shop specialized in letterpress business cards, letterhead and invitations.
Accoridng to the article, the shop operated in a two-story space and was run by Hilda Lam and her two sons. The decision to close the shop came after the death of one of her sons.

The premises were apparently full of antique printing equipment and lead type in English and Chinese. Most of the treasures have gone to collectors, including three typecasting machines that went to Nick Howard and should make their way into his Howard Iron Works Printing Museum in Mississauga. Other equipment went to Jukebox Print in Vancouver.
