The former pawnshop of the pylon was built in the Qing Dynasty, commonly known as the "Dadongmen Pawnshop", which was the second largest pawnshop in the city at that time.
It was lucky to have a rare old time pawnshop and be kept on the side of the city centre road
Passing by Dongping Owner, it is free and open to visit. It is not easy to keep it intact. The road was diverted for him, and the surrounding area became a pedestrian island. People crossing the road will stop and look at each other. The appearance also looks like a blockhouse.
"Big Pawn" is the former name of a large pawnshop in Guangzhou. The first floor is a pawn shop, and the upper floor is a warehouse for pawned items and money. The Diaolou-style architectural style is good for anti-theft and fire prevention, and can also show deterrence. This approach is very effective. In history, few people have heard of "big jail" being robbed.
Today, this kind of "diaolou" bet has become a unique landscape in the city's memory. It is also a mark of Guangzhou's years and history.
There are 3 existing Diaolou-style buildings in downtown Guangzhou. In addition to the "Dongping Dabao", there are also the "Baosheng Dabao" at the west gate and the "Baoqing Dabao" at Duobao Road.
The "Dongping Dabao" is the only "Dabao" watchtower that is free for tourists to enter.
