General Note: Text in English and Chinese.
Summary, etc.: "“Chinatown Through a Wide Lens: The Hidden Photographs of Yucho Chow,” is the story of one remarkable, early photographer whose work was almost forgotten. Yucho Chow was Vancouver’s first Chinese commercial photographer and its most prolific. His lens captured thousands of faces of all skin colours, religious beliefs and backgrounds and chronicled a tumultuous time in Vancouver’s and Canada’s early history."--from publisher.
