Life Under China Bridge & Other Stories of Minorities in Old Park City
Park City, UT
""Life Under China Bridge" continues Gary Kimball's publications about the history of Park City. In its preface, Kimball notes that this is a book about minorities in the city's past, but "the problem is that everyone in Park City was a minority" (iv). The first chapter examines Park City's Chinatown and includes Sanborn maps of the area and an appendix of 141 names of known Chinese residents of Park City up to 1950. Other chapters discuss William Jefferson Hardin, a talented and enigmatic man who ended his life in the mining town; the renaming of "Negro Hollow" to "Treasure Hollow"; and the place of Mormons in the largely non-Mormon Park City."
