History / Biographical
The Smithers’ Bakery originated as City Bakery & Confectionary, opened by Stanley C. Jones in 1913 and located on 1st Avenue and Main Street. In 1918, Lee Jackman, manager of the Hotel Bulkley dining room, leased the building to open a coffee shop and bakery. This business was later purchased by Mah Yoke Tong. Tong was born December 14, 1870, in Bai Sha Tong village in Taishan County, Guangdong, China. He arrived in Smithers in 1915 after living in Aldermere and Telkwa. In 1922, Tong sponsored his nephew Mah Wing Shek, who was known as Little Wing. Shek eventually took over his uncle’s business and the bakery became colloquially known as Wing’s Chinese Bakery. Tong passed away on February 11th, 1955. Shek passed away in the late 1980’s and the building was purchased by Spicer and Romieu Accounting & Insurance.
Scope and Content

Arrangement
