Sarah Romkey of UBC Library’s Rare Books and Special Collections (RBSC) comments in an article about an exhibit at the Maritime Museum of B.C. 

The exhibit, Floating on the Margins: Chinese Life on the Canadian Pacific Passenger Liners, illustrates the lives of early Chinese-Canadian sailors and passengers on the Canadian Pacific passenger liners. Items from the renowned Chung Collection, housed at RBSC, were loaned to the Maritime Museum for the show.
