History San José

History San José

This view depicts the community buildings of Woolen Mills Chinatown, San José. The temple is on the left, the theater entrance is in the center with the theater in the background, and businesses are on the right. On the far left is a bit of the Guadalupe River. On the far right, outside of this view, would be the cannery. In the foreground, a parade is taking place to celebrate Da Jui, a holiday specific to the San José community. This painting is the artist's interpretation of what this scene would have looked like, based on artifacts discovered and work with historian Connie Young Yu. On display at the Chinese American Historical Museum at the Ng Shing Gung, History Park.
