  1. Daniel, you made an interesting point on Chinese immigrants. However, I think for most of the immigrants, coming to the US is always a dream come true.
    From the dress on the first picture, I doubt he’s escaped from communism in China, which started at 1949. He’s probably one of the early Chinese immigrants who came to US to build the rail road.
