    Description

    CHINESE IMMIGRANT WEARING HAT - CALIFORNIA CABINET CARD - ca.1885. An Oakland, California cabinet card of an Asian man wearing traditional clothes and a wide brim cowboy-type hat. The Asian immigrants of this time were mainly Chinese, who established themselves as workers throughout the West, and formed communities that still exist to this day. This card is front-marked by Edward Arriola, a photographer born in Mexico who operated in California as early as 1870. The image has a nice tone and very good contrast.
