Interesting comments and reflections everyone. I recognize all the names mentioned in the various posts. It is by chance that I just came along this link as it is buried in the CHS site. To clarify, my parents William and Iris Chan owned the rum shop obliquely across from Ritz cinema (Rosignol). My grandparents (“the Chinese guy with the Indian wife”) were the original owners of the business. JC Chandisingh was married to my dad’s sister. They have all passed on, except for my mom.
