Restricted Entry Part 2

2020 marked the 110th anniversary of the Chung Wah Association’s official registration.

This photographic exhibition incorporates photos from Restricted Entry Part 1, shown in 2019, which highlighted the contributions of Chinese people to Western Australia from the late 1880s to 1919, years after the first documented Chinese person in WA landed in October 1829, 4 months after settlement in Fremantle.

Further, Restricted Entry Part 2 explores the contributions of Chinese Western Australians from the 1920s to the modern day, including enlistments in the Defence Forces during the Second World War, the migration changes of the 1970s and present day multicultural Australian society.

Proudly presented by the Chung Wah Association with kind support from Nella Fitzgerald Events.
