Images from Doug Stenzel

Please scroll-down. Click-on each photo to enlarge.

These photos were taken inside and outside the Bacchus Bar in Chinatown in 1962. I may have one
of the rare photos of George (I think that is what he was called), the photographer who took the thousands
of Chinatown photos that we all have in our collections (100 yen a copy, if memory serves).
