We need your help! Do you have any interior photos of this building from when it was a Chinese laundry (before its current use as a carriage shop)? We're planning to incorporate this building into the Pioneer Yosemite History Center in Wawona. (This building is just down the street from the history center, where it will remain.)

Photos of the interior of this building—or any Chinese laundry in California from the late 1800s or early 1900s—will be helpful as we restore the building in preparation for opening it to the public. Please send photos to yose_archives@nps.gov.

Thanks to Yosemite Conservancy and its generous donors for their support of this project, which will help us tell the story of the many Chinese laborers who were an integral in Yosemite's history. Learn more about the project at www.yosemiteconservancy.org/cultural-historic/expand-education-pioneer-history-center-2019.

Maybe the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco might have some photos?

Here’s a link to a 1910 Chinese laundry picture from the California State Archives http://immigrationtounitedstates.org/426-chinese-laundries.html

What an exciting project!!!

Check with Angles Island. The Chinese were housed there. Or the ​Wing Luke Museum.
