Locations of the landing points/docks for the boats that carried Chinese railroad workers
I’m contacting you on behalf of Chinese Whispers, a community-based storytelling project about contemporary folk memories of the Chinese who helped build the Transcontinental Railroad and settlements of the American West. The project is funded by the San Francisco Foundation and led by Artistic and Project Director Rene Yung.
I’m currently looking into the diaspora of Chinese immigrants in California/U.S. during the construction of the Central Pacific Railroad. I know San Francisco was a major disembarking point for Chinese who made their way to the railroad construction sites. Do you happen to know of the physical locations of the landing points/docks for the boats that carried Chinese railroad workers?
