Genthe's Photographs of San Francisco's Old Chinatown
by Arnold Genthe
Publisher's Description
Genthe photographed the ten-block area known as Chinatown from 1895 until it was leveled by the earthquake in 1906. His photographs are the best visual documentation of this ethnocentric part of America at the turn of the century. This original Dover publication includes many views never published or never shown full-frame, including a rare autochrome slide. They have been printed from the original glass negatives or lantern slides. In addition to the many street views of the bustling commerce, the candid portraits of merchants, dancers, and women and children in holiday finery make this a fascinating study.
