This colorful and celebratory time capsule of San Francisco's Chinatown-the largest Chinese community outside of Asia-shares the stories of the unique businesses, culture, and people encountered by map illustrator Ken Cathcart between 1939 and 1955. Each section of this stylized map, supplemented by Cathcart's never-before-seen black-and-white photographs, is explained in meticulous detail, revealing glimpses of the immigration story universal to America and exploring the struggles, triumphs, and enduring legacy of this vibrant community.
