Old Chinatown – Central Plaza 2
Old Chinatown – Central Plaza 2, 951 Sun Mun Way, Los Angeles, California, USA
This capture was made 20 min. after my last image post “Old Chinatown – Central Plaza 1” from within the plaza looking north down Sun Mun Way. The morning sun coming from the east at a low angle is bolder now, accentuating every detail in the Chinese architecture.
These buildings constructed in the 1930s are actually part of the 2nd Los Angeles Chinatown. The original was razed to build Union Station at which time the Chinese community moved to Little Italy, recently vacated as Italians moved to the suburbs. There are only two vestiges left (as far as I know) of what was once Little Italy at 125 Paseo De La Plaza #400 and St. Peter’s Italian Church.
