Chinese Americana]. [California]
Chinese Telephone Directory. May 1929. San Francisco and Oakland California
Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Co, San Francisco, 1929. 40pp. Original printed wrappers, stapled. Contemporary inscription on front cover. Some light wear and worming, heavier to final leaf, slightly affecting text in places. Closed tear to p.31. Internally clean. A rare issue of this San Francisco phone directory published by the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company for the local Chinese community, printed almost entirely in Chinese aside from the front cover (which also bears the title in Chinese). The directory served the large but still somewhat isolated Chinese populations in the Bay Area, this issue with listings for both San Francisco and Oakland. OCLC locates runs of this directory of varying completeness for the interwar years in about a dozen institutions, but copies of this particular issue only at SMU and the Oakland Public Library. Pre-depression issues are particularly scarce. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
