Yeung Ku-wan joined the newly established Hong Kong Headquarters of Xingzhonghui (Revive China Society) as its president in 1895. The society then planned uprisings in Guangzhou and Huizhou, both of which ended in failure. From 1900, Yeung taught English at his residence on the first floor of 52 Gage Street. He was murdered in January 1901 by an assassin sent by the Qing government. The associated artwork is located in Pak Tsz Lane Park.
