Chinese in Gloucestershire

A few Chinese families were running Chinese laundries in Gloucester as early as 1914 which remained unchanged until 1959. Throughout the 1960s, there was an explosion of Chinese restaurants and take aways, and it is now hard to imagine life without Chinese food. The author can confirm that his grandfather talked about Chinese laundries in Gloucester. You can see some photos of the events here, and if you have a high speed connection, you can see some video clips of the day here.
