Vancouver Feature: “China-town” Develops on Old Dupont
The following article is a feature from our Vancouver Feature series. Past features are not updated.
In 1887, a Vancouver newsman noted the concentration of Chinese residences and businesses at the south end of Carrall Street at Dupont — now Pender Street — near the edge of False Creek. The development of “China-town,” as he called it, was recent, but Chinese had been Vancouver pioneers from the start.
