Chinatown: Nanking Fook Woh

The post-quake postcards on this page show Nanking Fook Woh Co. on the northwest corner of Grant/Sacramento, a block north of Sing Fat and Sing Chong and just south of Hang Far Low. Nanking Fook Woh first appears in the 1917 Crocker-Langley ("importers of Oriental fine arts"), but the cards below show it as early as 1908.
