Chinatown Stories

This collection of stories describes Vancouver's Chinatown as experienced by long-time Chinatown residents. Recorded audio interviews are paired with images to tell a visual story in the form of short videos, some in English and some in Cantonese with subtitles.

The topics range from the changes over time in Chinatown, favourite businesses and buildings, as well as discussions of life and family. The funding that made the Chinatown Stories project possible was generously provided by Mr. Bob Rennie. Historical pictures provided by the VPL Historical Photographs Collection & City of Vancouver Archives.
