Chinese Beauty, 1893

E-mail Print PDF

One of the first Chinese women ever photographed in Chicago, at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition.  According to one source she came from Ogden, Utah (which had a small Chinatown at that time, dating from the building of the transcontinental railway), but she was probably a San Franciscan.  We have not found her name yet.
