Down by the Station : Los Angeles Chinatown, 1880-1933


 
Roberta S. Greenwood

Excavation of the Chinatown that was destroyed in the building of Union Station provides a rich picture of the people and life in nineteenth and early twentieth century Los Angeles. Intensive historical research, oral history, and laboratory analyses have been synthesized into a comprehensive reconstruction of a community that was isolated socially, economically, and geography.

“…a fascinating glimpse of a vital part of America’s heritage.”
