I’ve been adding so many new photos lately, and not posting any of them here. I feel like I’m letting myself down. But even though I love looking through these photos, it seems like such a chore to add them, describe them, tag them. I have what seems like thousands of photos still in the queue to add, and I get faint just thinking about it.
But I plowed through in the last couple of weeks and made some big additions. So I should start highlighting some of the photos now. First up, Carson City’s Chinatown. Chinatown was located along Third Street, just east of Stewart. It started in the 1870s, when the Chinese came to the area to build the railroad, and lasted until the 1950s, when the last of the buildings burned down or were demolished. Most of the photos were from the 1930s and 40s, when it was almost a ghost town. Here are some good ones, including “Yee Bong Cafe”, a chop suey house.
