Philly's Chinatown Started Here Circa 1870


Philly's Chinatown Started Here Circa 1870

According to an article about Chinatowns in the United States in yesterday's Philadelphia Inquirer, starting on the front page, Philadelphia Chinatown dates to 1870, when a man named Lee Fong started a laundry at 913 Race Street. I used circa, above, because online I see various dates, such as 1869 and 1871.
