Towkay Yeap Chor Ee, the founder of Ban Hin Lee Bank, may have died in 1952 but there is still a lot of unknown, untold or forgotten information about him and his family. For instance, I've just dug up an interesting photograph from a newspaper dated 14 Oct 1948 which showed Mrs Yeap Chor Ee nee Madam Lee Cheng Kin presenting the Malayan Chinese Football Association Cup (MCFA Cup) to Yeang Kar Chong, captain of the Penang Chinese team that defeated the Negri Sembilan Chinese Recreation Club 6-2 in the final played at Penang on 10 Oct 1948. Standing beside her was Yeap Hock Hoe. It's just a shame that the whole picture's watermarked over.
