Chinese in Albany

This episode of Malcolm Traill's 'Curatorials' looks at the influence of the Chinese in Albany and throughout Western Australia, from their first arrival in Sydney over 200 years ago to the present day. They were miners, gardeners, laundrymen and furniture makers - and were valued members of the Albany community too.
