Moung Ngwe Zin Building
The Moung Ngwe Zin building (อาคารหม่องโง่ยซิ่น) is located on Kad Kong Ta (กาดกองต้า), which is a historical quarter of Lampang parallel to the bank of the Wang River. A Burmese teak merchant built this house in 1908 and it is regarded as one the most beautiful Burmese inspired houses in Thailand.
The old picture comes from the website www.clipmass.com. According to this site this building was a store selling western consumer goods to resident British employees working for one of the teak logging companies. It has also served as a bar and hotel for employees of the Bombay Burma Trading Corporation, the biggest British teak logging company.
The building has been beautifully restored and now houses an art gallery and cafe on the ground floor.
