Welcome to Chinatown!
The intricate embroidery fascinated me.
I was surprised to see street signs in both English and Chinese as we began our walking tour.
"Benevolent associations" were formed by ethnic groups to help immigrants find housing, employment, etc. This building houses the Bing Kung Association.
More sights discovered during our walk.
Just imagine: rooms for 50¢, 70¢, and up with both hot and cold water.
Our tour of the International District was a delight. I learned a lot about the area's history--both happy and sad--and would enjoy another visit. If you're interested in more information, look here:
