    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.

    I'm interested in researching the history of a particular building in Chinatown. It's on Nelson Street. Would my best bet be going up to Fourth Floor of Central Library, or is there a better approach?

    I'm currently involved in a project called Chinese Language & Cultural Orientation. It's a short video production in a dvd format that will promote key Liverpool sites to Chinese communities outside of Liverpool. It will be in Mandarin and Cantonese with English subtitles

    Hi Caterina, unfortunately the authority on family's in Liverpool's "Chinatown", Lawrence Kee, passed away last year, however, if you PM me with the details of you relatives I will see if my wife can help and if she can't I will pass your information on to someone in Liverpool who might be able to.
    Good luck.
