Collector/curator's description reads: “Circa 1929, Vancouver. Harry Ivan Yuen at age 10. Passport photo taken by Yucho Chow. The purpose was to help Harry ‘permanently’ relocate to Yin Ping. The year was 1930, the Depression Era. The family travelled to China on The Blue Funnel S.S. Teucer but returned later the same year on CPR Empress of Japan. Seems like most of the children got sick in China so the family returned to Canada. It was the 2nd time for the patriarch, Jae Tong Yuen, sailing on the Empress of Japan. The first time was when he first arrived in 1910 and paid the Headtax. He was also incarcerated for 2 weeks at immigration detention centre (aka the Pig house) which was located where the present-day Fairmont Waterfront Hotel is now situated.)”
