San Francisco and Oakland Chinese Telephone Directory, March 1938

San Francisco: 1938. 34pp. Original green printed wrappers, stapled. Ink stamp on front cover, later paper label at top of spine. Minor wear and soiling, internally clean. Very good plus. Item #1208

A rare issue of this San Francisco phone directory published by the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company for the local Chinese community, printed almost entirely in Chinese aside from the front cover (which also bears the title in Chinese). The directory served the large but still somewhat isolated Chinese populations in the Bay Area, this issue with listings for both San Francisco and Oakland. We locate copies of this issue at Berkeley and Yale.

Price: $950.00
