Victoria's Chinatown is Canada's oldest Chinese neighbourhood and has a lineage unbroken since 1858.

With large-format colour photos and photocollages, Robert Amos and Kileasa Wong take you behind the doors of the 29 private clubs that make up the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association.

You'll see the gilded altars, antique art and ornate furniture that grace these meeting halls.

Through stunning pictures and text in both Chinese and English, you will meet the club members and take an inside look at the culture of this complex community. "Inside Chinatown" is sure to become a landmark publication chronicling the vibrant heritage of Chinese Canadians.
