Lane Crawford Ltd. was founded in Hong Kong in 1850 and is a retail company with speciality stores selling luxury goods in Hong Kong and Mainland China. Established by two Scots, Thomas Ash Lane and Ninian Crawford, Lane Crawford Ltd. opened a shop in a makeshift bamboo structure on the waterfront of what is now Des Voeux Road. Since that time, Lane Crawford has occupied a number of prime retail sites along Des Voeux Road and Queen's Road Central; in the early 1900's it also had stores in Guangzhou and Shanghai in China, and Kobe and Tokyo in Japan. It has been a tailor, and outfitter, a draper, a provisions dealer, a wine and spirits merchant, an auctioneer of antiques, a baker, a restaurant and a bar.
