The ongoing “Stories and Voices from LA Chinatown” exhibition celebrates the neighbourhood’s legacy as the first community in North America planned and owned by Chinese people. ⁠

Those pioneering families consisted of Cantonese immigrants who dared to move to American shores at a time when arrivals from Asia were not embraced.⁠

When LA Chinatown first opened in 1938, its residents knew they could capitalise on the broader curiosity and interest in “Oriental” culture, food and design. ⁠

And amid the constant bustle of tourists, Hollywood stars were often sighted pulling up in their Cadillac convertibles. ⁠

Los Angeles’ Chinatown today has admittedly lost much of its original lustre, but soon after it opened and into the 1950s, it was “the place to go”. ⁠
