City declares Modernize Tailor Day!


At a packed hall at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver's Chinatown,  City of Vancouver councilor Kerry Jang surprised the audience with the announcement that November 3, 2013 was officially "Modernize Tailors Day."

It was made in honour the 100th anniversary of operation at the legendary sartorial establishment.

Following the declaration, Bill Wong, son Steve Wong, and other members of family read passages from Bill's soon-to-be-published book which recounts his year in China as a fourteen-year-old boy.

A great day for Bill and the whole Wong family.

The event also opened a small exhibition featuring the history of Modernize Tailors. Check out the show at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. It will run until November 30.

Hi, I'm an Australian researcher interested in Chinese diaspora history, I would like to know how I could go about ordering a copy of Bill Wong's book? It has been featured on a few Chinese history pages here in Australia.
