THE LO-MEIN PROJECT
A photojournalism project of San Francisco's Chinatown District
by Julian Jensen
San Francisco’s chinatown is far from any kind of a suburban pattern. the history of the district parallels the history of the city of san-francisco. It grew out of the gold rush, lived through fires, survived the great depression, and continues to show the outside world a mixture of both west-coast-american and asian lifestyles. Visit chinatown, and you will be amazed along with all the other tourists. Stay in chinatown and you will know a different side of the city. Talk with the people who live in chinatown and you will realize how big this small district truly is.
