    Default Liverpool's Chinese community

    One of Liverpool's oldest none British communties is that of the Chinese. The same people who gave us the Blue Funnel Line and the HKSB, John & Alfred Holt, John Swire, respectively, were also responsible for introducing the Chinese to Liverpool.

    The history of L'pool's Chinese community is facinating. I'd like to read up on it a bit more but I've never found any books about it.
    I've got so many books about L'pool, but there doesn't seem to be much about China Town. I've seen a few pictures here and there, but I'd like to read and see more about Liverpool born Chinese, and their forefathers too.

    Now you would be wanting a book called Chinese Liverpudlians, Lindylou. Written by Maria Lin Wong and sub titled A history of the Chinese Community in Liverpool.

    It is available on ebay as well for a fair price.

    Chinese Liverpudlians.

    There is a page on the History of Chinatown on the Liverpool Chinatown Business Association website.
