Photograph of a view of buildings along Merchessault Street in Los Angeles's Chinatown looking east, November 1933. A long, two-story brick building extends across the image from the foreground at left towards the background at right. A concrete sidewalk runs along the front of the image, while balconies can be seen along the second floor. Several awnings cover the balconies at center. Large wooden doors and arched windows are visible on the first floor, while more windows can be seen on the second. Many potted plants are visible on the second floor balconies.
