Images of Chinese People and Communities in North America

Photographs offer a special insight into cultures, communities and people.  Dr. Chung meticulously gathered a comprehensive collection of photographs of Chinese-Canadian and Chinese-American people and communities.  Photographs depict families, Chinatowns, and various aspects of the social, cultural and work life of the Chinese diaspora.  Highlights include historical class photographs from Vancouver's Strathcona School, street scenes from the Vancouver, Victoria, and San Francisco Chinatowns, Chinese-Canadian wedding portraits, and the 1915-1918 photograph album of Jue Fong, then a Chinese-American teenager, which offers rare candid photographs from that time period.
