History Pin

CHSA began a project of digitizing our photography collection and posting it online to History Pin, thanks to our faithful volunteer, Nancy Fong. History Pin is a global history project that allows you to compare historic photos to their modern day locations. While allowing you to explore the early days of Chinatown, this site also lets you see how the neighborhood changes and redevelops. Please check back often for new photos are regularly added.

Please contact us with any questions online or at (415) 391-1188 x109. Thank you for your support!
