Anderson charts the construction of Chinatown in the minds and streets of the white community of Vancouver over a hundred year period. She shows that Chinatown -- from the negative stereotyping of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries to its current status as an qethnic neighbourhoodq -- has been stamped by changing European ideologies of race and the hegemonic policies those ideas have shaped. The very existence of the district is the result of a regime of cultural domination that continues to exist today.City, In Corresp., Vol. 53, Solicitora#39;s file, 7 April 1914, Clerk to Council. 80 Sun, 10 April 1914. Employment agent Hop W0 and Co., of Carrall Street, reported that sixty a€œChina-boysa#39; were dismissed from Vancouver homes following the incident.
