Chinese Benevolent Associations

I always enjoy looking at these two tall, thin buildings on Fisgard street in Victoria's Chinatown. On the left is the Shon Yee Benevolent Association Building and on the right is the Lee's Benevolent Association.

Victoria has a charming, colourful two-block long Chinatown, which I believe is the second oldest in North America, after San Francisco's.
Architecture can be great works of cultural art. Have you ever photographed the Legislature buiding's south side which has lots of grand columns, carved inset figures and beautiful surroundinglandscaping?
