Photos of Plum Alley, Salt Lake’s Chinatown

A few days ago I posted a story on Plum Alley, Salt Lake’s bygone Chinese enclave, and wanted to follow it up with more information.  For those of you who like historical photographs, check out the photos of Plum Alley in the online digital collections of Utah State History.  You can find the photos here.  Enjoy.

The site of Plum Alley is part of Salt Lake City’s historic downtown walking tour.  A printed tour guide can be found here.  You can see what the site looks like today by clicking here.

  1. These are cool — I’ve never seen them before. It’s strange to think both that this was so very near the center of the city, and that it has so completely vanished now, both physically and almost from memory.
