Heritage Marker SB23 - Temple Street
Learn more about Chinatown's rich history by visiting our Heritage Markers. Installed at places of historical significance around Chinatown, each plaque provides a short history of the location in three languages - English, Simplified Chinese and Japanese.

Before Temple Street got its name, it was called Almeida Street after Joachim D'Almeida, son of the legendary Dr Jose D'Almeida. An influential merchant, the Consul for Portugal as well as a doctor, Dr D'Almeida owned the land on which this street was built. The Hokkiens had another name for Temple Street: Gu Chia Chui Hi Hng Au, which means "the street behind the theatre". They were referring to Lai Chun Yuen, the famous Chinese opera theatre on neighbouring Smith Street. Many of the clients who frequented brothels at Temple Street and various parts of Chinatown were also patrons of Lai Chun Yuen. Along with prostitution came other social ills: violence and opium smoking.

Dr Chen Su Lan, the first locally trained Chinese medical practitioner, lived on Temple Street. He actively campaigned against opium smoking and prostitution, and his efforts improved the lives of a number of poor immigrants. Although Temple Street was less than salubrious, several of its buildings were associated with renowned architect F. W. Brewer. Most well known for his design of the Cathay Building and the Chinese Swimming Club, Brewer worked on no fewer than seven residential buildings on Temple Street.
