LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
China Alley is a short street in Hanford which served as the major center for Chinese Americans in Kings County. Chinese Americans who settled in the Hanford area were employed in railroad construction and the production of fruits and vegetables in the San Joaquin Valley. The Taoist Temple, an historic property listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is located in China Alley. Several of the brick buildings along China Alley stand vacant today including the L.T. Sue Herb Co. shop. The herb company was founded by Lok Ting Sue, a famous Chinese American herb doctor who had many patients, both Chinese and White, and was very successful financially. Chinese herb doctors were often patrionized in the nineteenth century because western medicine was not always reliable, and its methods were often extreme, such as the practice of bleeding. Chinese herbal medicine, though not always effective, was not harmful, and it had centuries of use behind it.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
The Taoist Temple Preservation Society is planning a fund drive to kick off efforts to restore this building. We are looking for a design that would be marketable on t shirts and other fundraising activities.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
Classic and bold. This building is in Hanford's China Alley Historic District.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
We would love to see a depiction of the building. No stereotypical Chinese style fonts please.
