Retail Shop, Chinese Quarter
Places of Significance - Cairns Regional Council

Like its adjacent and northern neighbour, this small suburban shop was a small goods supplier to the local area around the top end of Draper Street. Like its neighbour, it too was run by a Chinese family and was until recently (1995) managed by Philip Wu Won. The shop is of local significance as a tangible element of suburban infrastructure, and is significant in the association of Chinese ownership and settlement in this area, in a street that had once been called Canton Street.
