Shanghai and Canton Alley in Chinatown, Vancouver

Image from Shanghai Alley activity in Things to do in Chinatown Vancouver

Shanghai and Canton Alleys were the basis for the beginning of the current Chinatown. New immigrants would flow into the area, be set up with accommodations and familiar language and foods, a necessity for many. The Alley is now a shrine to those who lived within the area who made it a better place for all Chinese-Canadians.
