  9. Notes: 262 / 2 years ago  from 3rdofmay
    3rdofmay:The art: Carleton Watkins, A Chinese Man Sitting at a Table, undated, though likely 1860s-1880s. From the album “San Francisco Views,” which features more photographs of San Francisco’s Chinatown than any other single neighborhood.
The news: “The End of Chinatown,” by Bonnie Tsui in December’s The Atlantic.

The source: Collection of the Bancroft Library at the University of California, Berkeley, via Calisphere. 
Related: America’s first great Chinatown was in San Francisco. Both Eadweard Muybridge and especially Watkins loved to photograph it, perhaps because it was different, even exotic. I’ll feature another Watkins later today.
