Chinatown Los Angeles: "1870, an identifiable "Chinatown" of 200 or so was situated on Calle de Los Negros - Street of the Dark Hued Ones - a short alley 50 feet wide and one block long between El Pueblo Plaza and Old Arcadia Street. These early, mostly male, Chinese were mainly laundrymen, market gardeners, agricultural and ranch workers, and road builders. Despite the heavy discrimination in the late 19th century, Chinese held a dominant economic position in the Los Angetes laundry and produce industries for several years of this period. Consequently, old Chinatown flourished, expanding eastward from the Plaza across Alameda Street and eventually attaining a population of over 3000."
Spent some time over the weekend to catch up with Christine. You always have to take the time to have some tea and steamed dumplings. Went to Golden Dragon in Chinatown and had some dim sum and then some.
She is the best person to go with, because she is Chinese and she usually orders like a pro.
After we went across the street and got some lovely shots. Love how the colors turned out. So bold and vibrant...
