Legacy of Limehouse Chinatown: Tracing the histories of London's old Chinatown

舊華埠記憶---尋找東倫敦舊唐人街歷史

Islington Chinese Association has recently been awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to deliver a Chinese heritage project: Legacy of Limehouse Chinatown. The project will be conducted in collaboration with Tower Hamlets Local History Library and Archives and the Islington Museum. Starting in August 2010, the 14-months project aims to trace, record, preserve, celebrate and disseminate the history of the earliest settlement of the Chinese migrants to Limehouse – London's first Chinatown. Through interviews, the project will collect items of cultural heritage, uncover stories and memories of the place for the period from late 19th century up to 1960's. The oral histories collected from this project will be deposited at Tower Hamlets Local History Library and Archives and Islington Museum. Such histories will be made available to the public.
