Chinatown Street Scenes

The Telephone Exchange Building

The image is the Telephone Exchange Building, now yet another branch of the East-West Bank. 

San Francisco's Chinatown is an interesting place.  Ken Cathcart published a map of Chinatown in 1947.  Recently, Jim Schein published a book featuring the map as well as photos taken by Cathcart and others of Chinatown.  I thought it might be interesting to retrace Cathcart's steps.   The gallery, Chinatown Street Scenes has shots from one day.  Obviously this project will take a while.   For more about Cathcart and the book, see:
