Time Out says

Established in the 1950s, the Cheung Choon Chemist is something of a historical monument in the Kowloon City neighbourhood. Having stood the test of time, this humble little practitioner's office was once a popular destination for unlicensed medical businesses to buy medicine from, due to the lack of strict regulations within the walled city. There were even travellers who would make a stop here to fill up on some “supplies” before heading back to the nearby Kai Tak Airport. With Dr Fong, the original founder of Cheung Choon Chemist, holding a patient’s hand while a low-flying aeroplane from Kai Tak casts a formidable shadow over the surrounding residences, this particular piece of shutter art perfectly illustrates the iconic era in which this neighbourhood chemist was built.
