Image Description: This photograph, taken 40 years ago, shows Mr. Chow, an old hand laundry worker, who was once an aspiring young man with a good education in China, who had become embittered by his experience in this country. He had left his wife in China and didn't see her for 30 years but eventually she was able to come meet him in America. For them, every day together was such a precious thing. Their personal story is emblematic of the history of the Chinese Exclusion Act and its consequences in the lives of countless Chinese Americans.
