Ah Quee Street today (22 November 2008)



Ah Quee Street , or Lebuh Ah Quee, is one of two streets in George Town named after Kapitan China Chung Keng Kwee. It was presented by the Kapitan to the Municipality of George Town around the turn of the 20th century. To create the street, Kapitan Chung Keng Kwee, who was also known as Ah Quee, had his shophouse fronting Beach Street demolished.

Ah Quee Street runs from Beach Street to emerge at Pitt Street (Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling) opposite Buckingham Street. It ran through a Malay village that used to be there, called Kampung Takia, and for that reason, it was initially known as Lorong Takia.
