Also in Sheung Wan (or maybe that’s already Central, it could be at the border) is a small printer shop that I’ve only noticed when it’s dark, during the week days. It’s at the end of Wellington Street, just before it hits Queen Road Central.
The printer is always very busy, fulfilling orders. He never stops. A few times I’ve seen customers asking him questions, but even then he is working with the print press or a binding machine.
I am always amazed that the shop is tiny, just tucked away in a small corner. Half of its space is taken away by a staircase leading to the flat above. Any available space is filled with papers and materials.
Most impressively are the old machines and the equipment used – it looks like the shop has been here for decades and never changed. Time seems to have stopped when walking past this printing shop.
