This Sydney Chinatown was a small but an exciting part of Sydney in the 1960′s.
Much larger and more tourist friendly today it lacks the mystery that the dark narrow street once offered.
The real things in Taiwan is much better.
Dihua Street in Taipei has hundreds of such stores.
In Kaohsiung I found a street of traditional shops (west of Kaohsiung Main Station and just past the school).
This street has been renovated with a roof that turns the area in what we’d call an ‘arcade’.
It would be even nicer at night with good photographic subjects galore.
I seem to gravitate to dried seafood. Heavily salted it apparently has a good shelf life.
