Traditional Clothing of Chinese Central Pacific Railroad Workers

From: "Hannah Lundberg"

... I am currently working on a History Day project in the perfomance category on Chinese immigration during the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad. I have looked at pictures, but I still can't tell what type of clothing the Chinese workers and American foremen in charge of them wore. I will need to wear clothing similar to theirs for my performance so if you have any idea I would greatly appreciate it. ...
