Argyle Street, Little Indochina, 1987
Another great photo available on eBay. Here's the seller's description: REVITALIZED NEIGHBORHOOD Sammy Luk, owner of New Chinatown Hardware, and Phung Thai, owner of My. A. Market, left to right, talk on Argyle Street, which had become known as "Little Indochina." It's a thriving Southeast Asian neighborhood in Chicago." Reverse is also stamped "CHICAGO/LITTLE INDOCHINA" and "RECEIVED EXAMINER REFERENCE LIBRARY DEC 24 1987". Reverse also contains a newspaper clipping showing the photograph as it was originally published. The caption accompanying the clipping reads "Chicago merchants Sammy Luk, left, and Phung Thai".
