New exhibit uses fiction to talk about Chinese community's history in Calgary | News
Five short pieces are based on historical fact and aim to give people a better sense of Chinatown's history and its contributions to Calgary through the stories of characters from early Chinatown — like Jimmy Smith, whose donation after his death in 1890 funded Calgary's first permanent hospital, located in what is now Victoria Park.
